Peace Cranes

Photo of paper Cranes in Hiroshima

One of the most impresive sights in Hiroshima are the innumerable brightly coloured paper cranes at the Children’s Peace monument.
I was told that the origami cranes had become a powerful peace symbol because of the story of a little Japanese girl who developed leukemia 10 years after the nuclear bomb had been dropped.
She had begun to fold 1000 origami cranes but died before she could complete her task. Others continued for her and there are thousands and thousands of new cranes every year.

Palermo: Monreale

Filed under: — site admin @ 5:32 pm


The cathedral of Monreale was built by king William II who wanted it to be a sign of his power and sovereignty - outdoing the existing basilica in which the bishop (Walter of the Mill, an Englishman) resided.
A few years later, the bishop ordered his basilica to be torn down - and a new one to be erected in its place.
In any case, the cloister of Monreale is a beautiful place - and you can spend lots of time examining the architectural details: almost every column has an individual design..

Travel Photography Forum

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:57 pm

From mails and guest book entries, it is clear that many of the people visiting this site are fellow-photographers.
So, why not talk directly to each other?
I created a “yahoo club” for travel photography back in 1998 and this group now has more than 2000 members.
So, if you want to ask for advice, discuss photo issues or post some photos to the group galleries, Travel Photo Forum might be of interest to you.

Hope to see you there!

Travel Photography Webring

Filed under: — site admin @ 5:52 pm

I hope that you like my site. There’s this photo log, the country galleries, the guest gallery and also the thematic galleries at Online Photo Galleries.

Still, there are many other photo sites that have equally good - or even better - pictures.
How do you get there?
I have linked to some of the sites I like myself and of course, there always are search engines like Google.

Another Option is Webrings. A webring combines different sites on a given subject matter, using a simple navigation system. It’s up to the ring manager to decide which sites to accept, but ideally you’ll have a chance to easily follow a way through many high-quality pages.
One ring I manage is Travel Photo Webring, another one I would recommend is Photography and Travel by my friend Ralf Bschges.
Some more rings I maintain.

Try this - I hope you’ll have a your fascinating virtual journey !
However, if you should find a break in the navigation of one of my rings - or a site that really doesn’t belong there: please tell me! I make a point of visiting the member sites myself from time to time, but it may take a while to check out thousands of pages…
