Welcome, to my Photos from the Road

Travel has always been in my blood and a camera is never far from me; for me, travel without a camera is unthinkable.
Purpose of my travels have differed over the years, switching from an interest in history to admiration for Mother Nature, cultures to airplanes. It has been a mix for many years now.
From the links below I intend to show you my photos I made during various trips & travels, with some comments on personal impressions and observations.
Travel - my origin and destination

LINKS on travel and photography

"Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs. The very activity of taking pictures is soothing, and assuages general feelings of disorientation that are likely to be exacerbated by travel." ---Susan Sontag 'On Photography'

This homepage was initially made with 1st Page 2000 and Webber32 HTML (free) editors and I used stuff from Boogie Jack.
After a few years I switched to Adobe Dreamweaver software
