This book is a photo essay documenting the places that Eileen and I visited on our "Trip of a Lifetime" in 2008.
Our journey began in Vancouver BC with a flight to Holland. From there we traveled to Paris and then to England. In England we boarded a Norwegian Cruise lines ship and spent the next four weeks exploring countries in the Baltic and across the Atlantic.
Anyone can take pleasant travel photographs, I judge my images by several criteria, these include subject interest, composition and technical skill. One thing that makes an image stand out for me, is its ability to surprise me, to make me look again. I hope that you will enjoy these photographs and occasionally find yourself taking a second look.
