Pictures & Travels

I have been lucky enough to get to travel to various parts of the world and here in the USA. Here are a few pictures of some of the places I have been. These pictures will not look very good unless you have 16 bit color. Most of my traveling these days is going to various conventions, both gaming and SF/F. I will add interesting pictures from the cons as I get them.

I have a Travel Annex set up at a different site. It has pictures and travel tips from my 1999 trip to Australia and some of my road trips here in North America. Just follow this link and let me know what you think.


I got to spend a few weeks in India in 1979. I saw a couple of the tourist attractions, and several things that are not usually considered such.

These were taken in a Jainist temple in Bombay. The second was taken with the camera lens between the bars separating us from the statues.

On the way to India we spent a day in Rome. I saw a lot of the usual tourist attractions there. Including spending some time at the Vatican and St. Peter's.

St. Peter's DomeA beautiful shot of the dome in St. Peter's Basilica. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Here are a couple of views of the Roman Coliseum.

This is from a trip I took to the Dominican Republic in 1980 to help clean up after a hurricane.
