A new start

Welcome to a new start for fac73.com.

I will try to post more often and share some of the stuff/projects I am working on, as well as interesting stuff I find.  Topics will be related to my interest in travel, food, culture, music, and of course, photography.  There will probably be other stuff of interest, but we'll see how it goes.
