Okay, just downloaded the last few hundred photos to share. I was quite prolific overall this year with almost 4,000 photos to choose from. I bought a 16 GB card and went to town.
I am reliving my own Tucson experience as I download photos on here...

I know how you feel Gail! I felt the same way when I meet one of my mentors for the first time, Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson FRS who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1973 for his work on Organometallic compounds. A true gentleman and genius who also came from very humble beginnings.
