Collected Images Online

 

 One of my projects in December was to launch a new online image collection, put together mainly from digital images taken over the past few years.  Previous Other Pages collections have been comprised mainly of film images scanned from print or negative. Statue from the British museum

The address for the new site is  

           http://images.theotherpages.org

With about 110 images as a starting point. I will be adding more photos from Asia, the western U.S., and Florida before long.

The collection is titled Beautiful Images II, and yes, original contributions are welcomed.
