there are several ways to navigate these photos. you can click the photos or arrows to go straight through and see everything, or you can jump around by day or by category using the listing at left. i'd recommend going straight through, though, because not everything is in a category. thanks!
this is it, the last photo. if you want, you can go look at more photos or you can just go home.
