Taken with a Kodak Brownie camera at age 11(?)

This site is a collection of digital images, both moving and still. Since there are many images here and they are each composed from many pixels, I call this place The Pixel Pot.

I have been taking pictures since I was 10, almost 60 years ago. To the right is an early one that has survived, a “selfie” no less! (You can see more of my early work below and in the Family section.)

Since those early beginnings I have taken thousands of pictures and hours of videos, the more interesting of which I am posting to this site. Most of the images are from my travels, both near and far, for business and pleasure, with friends and family and new acquaintances. I have divided the collection into six categories.

Some of my Early Photos…

  • Family: These are images of my extended family and images from visits to them or vacations with them.
  • Railroading: As a boy, I played with Lionel trains. After college, I did some N-scale modeling. For the last 20 years, I have been involved in G-Scale modeling. I also have taken a number of rail-fan excursions in Europe and North America.
  • Cruising: In my younger years, I was into sailing. I owned a Cal T/4 for a few years, but mostly I raced or cruised on other peoples boats. The Sailboat section contains images from those experiences. Then, I took my first oceanic cruise in 2002 and have been on a couple dozen since then. These are covered in the Large Ships section. In 2003, I cruised the coast of New Zealand on the 128-passenger Odyssey Clipper and fell in love with cruising on boats of this size. See the Small Boats section for these.
  • Other Trips: If an excursion didn’t involve a boat, a train, or family, it’s captured in here.
  • Miscellany: Finally, there is this catch-all category, containing mostly short subjects featuring local events.

Each of these categories has it’s own page. Click the category name is the list above to explore the images there. Recent additions and changes to the site are listed in the What’s New section. And a list of the entire collection can be found in the Index section.
