See that nice blank spot of grass to the left of the headstone? That is where I expect I shall be buried, by my grandparents. (My parents will be nearby, a row or two away). I like visiting this spot, and seeing the markers for my family around. It gives me a happy sense of belonging.
I am a keen amateur photographer, an avid traveler, a dedicated researcher. My main area of interest is the European middle ages although I like history and culture, especially social history, of all eras and regions. I am especially fond of good architecture and I am really, really fond of reptiles.
I usually post this blog to share highlights from my travels with family and friends. If you are a potential friend wandering by, you are welcome; any of my art or nature images posted here are available for non profit personal or study use, and if reproduced I ask that I be credited as photographer.
