The world is a beautiful, intricate, amazing, breathtaking place. Earth is a haven of life floating in the midst of the endless expanse of space. We are fortunate enough to get to call this 3rd rock from the sun our home, an island of life in a sea of stars. Nature has given us air to breath, and a complex web of eco-systems and wildlife that are almost beyond belief in their magnificence. We are so, so lucky. Mixed in with the complexity and vibrance of humanity, and we find ourselves on a planet that is rich in culture and history. I have been fortunate enough to have travelled the world in my youth, and it left me enchanted. There are places out there that defy belief, people that will change your perspectives and scenery that will take your breath away. I hope some of these images inspire you to feel more connected to your backyard, the world.
