I love to travel and, for me, photography is a means of extending each trip I take. It allows me to capture moments I might otherwise forget and to examine worlds new to me in more detail once I return home. I try to capture what I find unique about the places I visit as a means of comparing cultures from around the world. I organize my photos into thematic sets that build into a collection for that country. Some of the individual photos may not be of interest, but they are a part of the story overall and may make more sense once viewed as part of the full set. The end result is more akin to a photo essay than a collection of travel photos and hopefully the format is interesting and informative to others as well.
I thank the flickr community for the exchange that takes place as we view and comment on each others photos. I have learned much from the process and want to especially thank my flickr contacts for all their input and for all their beautiful photos.

"Ellen has the talent to show you the beauty and fascination of our world through her eyes in her own special way. Every single photo tells a story. She is a wonderful and loyal friend and appreciates not only to travel but shows respect for all different cultures. I think she is very talented!"

"I was stunned to see Ellen's pictures of the lesser known and lesser travelled countries like Iran, Cuba, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan with the complete details and description where ever needed, the architectural pictures are great. There are few excellent Portraits in her Photostream which tell much about the culture and lifestyles of the people of these places. I would say her photostream is a Travelogue. I heartily Congratulate her and thank her for sharing such beautiful pictures and information. My Best Wishes are with her."

"Ellen travels to very interesting places in the world and she always brings back plenty of nice photos. She has a talent in viewing many different aspects in each country from landscapes to buildings, people, social aspects and behavior and even for small details and she knows how to capture all these aspects in great pictures.
I enjoy watching her photostream because I can learn a lot about the countries from the background information she provides."

Well done Ellen, keep up the good work!"
