About the Book
A tour through Scotland and England, but this special edition has added a bunch of pictures over 5 pages of the 144th Scottish Highland Gathering & Games held Sept. 5&6, 2009, in the Alameda (CA.) Fairgrounds. Also we take a look at The Lakes District in England, Windermere in particular, plus Stonehenge, and even a look for "Nessie," and castles in Scotland. A visual fun tour to remind you where you've already been, or should plan to go.
I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted blurb.com books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.
