Portfolio as of July 2011

Currently being updated.  However, here’s the first pass of what is lurking around in my portfolio.  It’s still missing a few items, and I need to collect a few older pieces as well, but for now, this is what I’ve got.  I will be going through and hopefully adding some more detailed posts about certain items too, so keep an eye out.
