Here is a selection of artistic photograph taken in Europe by author and photographer Robert A. Parker. Areas visited include the British Isles, Norway, Copenhagen, Paris, the Alps, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, and Italy. Parker's purpose here is not to capture every familiar landmark in these locations but rather only those images which caught his eye, capture the essence of a scene, or contain, for him, artistic harmony. Each location is accompanied by a brief verbal reflection that complements the visual images.
