Thank you for coming to see my photographs, which are in the galleries on this page. My largest collection of photographs is of famous paintings and because of the high volume of these images there are two galleries: "Paintings A - L" and "Paintings M - Z".

The other galleries are "Sculptures", "People", "Cemeteries", "Blooms Foliage Trees Sky", "A Blurred World" and "All Other Photographs". Again, thank you for stopping by.
