About - PaulTavares
Welcome to my photo site. I use photography to enhance my interests in travel and nature. Travel for work and for pleasure has given me a better understanding of history and an appreciation for the everyday lives of peoples in other countries. Nature and the wonder of the natural world around us has always interested me. I find that carrying a camera on my walks in natural areas makes me more observant and aware of sights, sounds and smells. In both the case of travel and nature, the camera often reveals details that you may not notice at first glance. In fact some details only become apparent after you get back home and work with the images on the computer.

I view these images as frozen memories best thawed on quiet evenings with a suitable de-icing beverage. Once thawed, all of the original sensations of when the photos were taken can be re-experienced.

Thanks for dropping by and check again for new additions.

    Great shots of Peru. Brings back fond memories. The Inca were really advanced when you think about it. I'll have to study your web site and learn a bit...

    Paul, It was a pleasure to travel with you and I am in awe of the photos you took. You have certainly travelled a lot, and I am looking forward to a few "armchair" trips in the rest of your website.
