After GarGar became King, one of his first acts was to found a school for navigation. There, students learned to read maps and charts of the seas and skies. King GarGar was keen on becoming known as GarGar the Navigator, sailing ships all over the globe. He was one of the first people of his day to acknowledge that the world was in fact round, not flat. For this alone, he could be regarded as an enlightened despot.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar. View more posts
