These pages are a collection of photographs taken around the world. As time goes on, they will be included in country-specific portfolios. They are grouped by country and region.

The crofters were some of the earliest settlers in the Outer Hebrides in Scotland. A harsh climate and great distance from the mainland created a independent and stoic way of living which is still resonates today. On the island of Barra, where this photo was taken, people speak Scots Gaelic first.
York is a very popular English tourist that manages to be very nice despite the crowds. It has a huge cathedral ("Minster"), intact city walls, a fascinating Viking museum and a very interesting old quarter called the Shambles where buildings hang out over the street.
Chateau Chillion is located on the eastern end of Lake Leman in Switzerland.
