We've retired this blog!

After 15 years and more than 8000 posts, we've ended this blog. I've had so many amazing life changes since the start of Covid. I've taken a new path and only deal directly with my fine art clients and art galleries for my photos. I'd like to thank all of my friends, PR firms, clients, authors, and manufacturers that submitted great content to work with. It was fun and I hope you benefited as well. The Pix archives are now offline and you'll have to contact me directly at pix724dotcom@yahoo.com to arrange to see a PDF of samples. Thank you again!

on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.
