As one of my year-end features on this site, I published in late December a post with my Top Ten favorite pictures from my travels during 2019. In the same post, I also invited readers to send in their favorite pictures from their own 2019 travels, with the idea that I would post the readers’ pictures here, on this blog. Last week, I published the first installment of readers’ travel pictures. Today, I am very happy to publish the second set of readers’ pictures. There are some great pictures in this set.

Lucerne, Switzerland

Early next week, I will be publishing my annual Top Ten Stories in D&O survey.

In my travel pics post, I also invited readers to submit for their favorite pictures of their own travel in 2019. I am pleased to report that many readers have submitted pictures for consideration. I have published a sampling of readers’ submissions below.

In early January 2020, I will be publishing my annual survey of the Top Ten D&O Stories. For now, though, I know that most readers are not interested in reading about insurance or the law. So today instead of my usual fare, I am posting my favorite pictures that I took in the course of my 2019 travels. In addition, following the pictures below, I am extending an invitation to readers to send me their favorite travel pictures from this past year. As detailed below, I will publish a selection of readers’ picture submissions in future blog post(s).

frisbeeSummer has given way fall, and that means that it is time for another round of readers’ Frisbee photos, this time including a harvest of great pictures taken overseas. Readers will recall that in connection with The D&O Diary’s recent tenth anniversary, I offered to send out a D&O Diary Tenth Anniversary Frisbee to anyone who requested one – for free — but only if the Frisbee recipient agreed to send me back a picture of the Frisbee and a description of the circumstances in which the picture was taken. I have already published several rounds of Frisbee Photos (all of which can be found here), and now it is time for the next round.

frisbeeWith summer winding down, more readers have been sending in pictures of their Tenth Anniversary D&O Diary Frisbees, with many of the pictures taken on family vacations. It always a pleasure to see the many places where readers have taken their Frisbees for their photo shoot.   Readers will recall that in connection with The D&O Diary’s recent tenth anniversary, I offered to send out a D&O Diary Tenth Anniversary Frisbee to anyone who requested one – for free — but only if the Frisbee recipient agreed to send me back a picture of the Frisbee and a description of the circumstances in which the picture was taken.

frisbeeThe collectors’ edition D&O Diary Frisbees we have sent to interested readers have proven to be both ornamental and functional, as reflected in the latest round of readers’ pictures. And the Frisbees have once again proven to be well-travelled, to say the least.  Readers will recall that in connection with The D&O Diary’s recent tenth anniversary, I offered to send out a D&O Diary Tenth Anniversary Frisbee to anyone who requested one – for free — but only if the Frisbee recipient agreed to send me back a picture of the Frisbee and a description of the circumstances in which the picture was taken. I have already published two rounds of Frisbee Photos (here and here), and now it is time for the third round.

Tfrisbeehe D&O Diary’s readers cover a lot of ground and have an incredible diversity of interests, if the latest round of Frisbee photos is any indication. Readers may recall that in connection with The D&O Diary’s recent tenth anniversary, I offered to send out a D&O Diary tenth anniversary Frisbee to anyone who requested one – for free — but only if the Frisbee recipient agreed to send me back a picture of the Frisbee and a description of the circumstances in which the picture was taken.

mugshot4-300x224On several occasions I have published what I thought would be the last of the D&O Diary mug shots, only to find afterwards that still more mug shots were arriving in my email mailbox. That has happened yet again, and this time some of the late arriving mug shots are appropriate to the holiday season.

mugshot4-300x224I know I have previously declared (twice now) that we have reached the end of the publication of readers’ mug shots, but the pictures just keep arriving. I have been holding some late arriving pictures on the chance that still others might appear, but rather than let the pictures in hand to go stale, I
