Europe Collection 1

England is my "home away from home".  Several of these are scenes from the Her Majesty's Palace and Tower Of London, including the rather formidable Raven.  A handful of these ravens are carefully kept at the Tower for, as tradition tells us, if the ravens should leave, the Kingdom will fall.  They have their very own Ravenmaster Yeoman Warder, roomy quarters (they're free on the grounds during the day) and one clipped wing each.  Intelligent and curious, the also have a nasty bite, so visitor beware.

Cambridge is my favorite of the university towns.  The River Cam flows lazily along "The Backs" and colleges along its shore each have a bridge across.  The view of King's College Chapel is from "The Backs", as well.

Sacre Coeur stands atop Montmartre in Paris, a white sentinel that is visible from any other "high" place in in the city, including the Eiffel Tower and the Arc d'Triumphe.  Montmartre remains something of an artist colony.  The front steps of Sacre Coeur and the small plaza at their base are home to those enjoying a spectacular view over the city of Paris.  You can ride up Montmartre on a "cable car" or take the steps - personally, I recommend riding up and walking down.

Henry VII founded Kings College, Cambridge. This large gothic chapel's choir faces the River Cam, across "The Backs".

This bridge gives Clare College, Cambridge its own way across the River Cam.
