This little project has been years in the making. When I worked on the movie about our first Paris trip, in 2002, the well-known Russian pop song (called “Walking about Paris”) was the obvious choice for an opening segment.

A small selection of shots made during my recent Scottish adventure can be found via the links on the sidebar or directly here.
A pretty interesting observation from our regular drives in and through France are the “nearby attraction” billboards on French freeways.

The French are very fond of the summertime practice of producing light shows at their famous landmarks. I cannot fault them for it: Every time we come across one such, it is a great spectacle. On our return journey from the big summer trip we stopped overnight in Strasbourg. The kids were tired after a

Disclaimer #2: The closest that I’ve ever been to a major North American skiing resort is Mont-Tremblant in Quebec, which normally figures somewhere in the Top 20 on the travel magazines’ lists.
