It has been wonderful to have had a chance to see these photos when they were originally posted by rg. And it's fantastic to have the links to them collected in this way. (Along with a chance to revisit the discussions that they were part of !!!)

Thank you, rg, for sharing this collection with us. Thank you, Helene, for taking on the formidable job of gathering them in one place.
