Beginning about 40,000 years ago early man was recording their memories in cave paintings. Much later, he began to write poems and prose. But only in the past 100 years has it become possible for us to record and interpret the world around us through photography.

My wish is that these photographs will speak to you of the world as I have seen and experienced it.

THE DANUBE RIVER:  Originating in Germany, the Danube flows southeast for 1,189 miles, passing through or touching the border of Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Ukraine before emptying into the Black Sea.

After 6 days in Prague, Czech Republic,  we will travel the Danube River during August and September from Regensburg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary, visiting cities and villages along its route. After an overnight train trip from Budapest to Bucharest, Romania, we will spend 2 weeks in Romania on a birding trip in the Delta of the Danube. The Delta is the largest wetlands in Europe and have a great bio diversity, especially of birds. The last 4 days of our visit to Romania we will visit the medieval Saxon villages on the north side of the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania.  These Saxon villages were settled during the mid 1200's and still retain medieval ambience. Some 350 of the villages still have stone fortified churches is use from the dates of their construction in the 1200's.

After we complete the above trip I will post photos and comments on this blog of the villages and people along the Danube River.
