I am, for all intents and purposes, done posting to this blog. I don’t have the time to truly dedicate myself to finding quality images full time, but  will continue to post historical images when I run across them on my main blog: http://indypendent-thinking.tumblr.com/. I hope to see you there!

Thank you for all of your support over the past few years! I appreciate each of you!
