Tmh Photo Album

  1. 1. I’ve always had a love for field work, and photography, and I’m very fortunate that being a Field and Design Consultant with CDC gets me out of the office and into some interesting places. Just for fun, here are 50 random photos with captions that I’ve captured over the years. Enjoy. Tim M Hovey Curtainwall Design Consulting – Colorado [email_address]
