I BEG OF YOU!  I don't often beg, so this must be important.  Flickr makes it really easy to comment on any picture you view.  Just click in the box under the picture and type away.  If you have any (and I mean any) knowledge of a picture you're viewing, please share.  You can identify people in the picture, provide a date or location, recall a story about the place... whatever.  One caveat- you have to have a Flickr account.  It's easy to sign up, but if you don't want to, you can use this shared account--  User Name:  AsherVisitor (one word)  Password:  asher74826 (all lower case).

If you're looking for a picture with a particular person in it, I'm working on something to help you out.  Eventually all my pictures will be tagged with the people in it.  So, all you have to do is click the person you're looking for, and it will show you all the pictures that person is in.  I've got several done--several to go--but try it out and see if you find anyone you know.  GET STARTED HERE

IMPORTANT! I am no longer maintaining or adding to the the galleries on this site, but if you'd prefer not to use flickr, you can still access those here I've posted all of the Asher pictures, both past and present, on Flickr, a photo-sharing site.  All new photos will be posted to Flickr rather than this site.  This makes it easier to post, share and comment on the photos.
