Culture in Peril Shares Photos and Videos

The Author at Tower of Belem, Lisbon, Portugal

The only photograph of me holding a camera happens to have been taken at the Tower of Belem, Lisbon, a UNESCO World Heritage Site (Photo Credit: Derek Orth)

I missed the Instagram memo and decided to start a Flickr Photostream instead.  I like the use of the Flickr portfolio to share images and videos more than the actual social media component of Instagram, though I’m sure each service would function in generally the same way for my simple purposes.  Here you’ll see raw (no post-production involved) photos I’ve taken at different times and in different places.  You’ll see an underlying theme, in sets: Interiors: Inside Places and Spaces; Exteriors: Outside Places and Spaces; Storage Environs; and more to come as I continue adding.  In general, most of these photos are of museums, libraries, historic sites, culturally significant environments.  Some photos are artful and well-composed, others not so much, but hey, I never claimed to be a travel photographer, just a heritage tourist/activist!  I want you to see what I see when I visit these places and spaces.
