Paul Brown Exhibit "Wild Visions"

Paul Brown owns the property next to the famous Christmas Place that I write about in my blog. He is a good friend, an exceptional writer, and a world famous photographer. Plus, he killed the giant deer we were all slobbering over to get a couple of years ago. If you are in the area, please go see his exhibit. It will be worth your while.
