Galen R. Frysinger

Today I found the most amazing website. Galen R. Frysinger is a retired scientist whose field is now 'comparable ethnography'. He has been travelling the world for a long time. His website is bizarrely amateur, with word art and 90s graphics and sound effects: but do not let this put you off. His photos are incredible, there is an unbelievable amount of them from every possible place in the world. It's somehow so much more interesting than looking through a glossy photography book. You can click on the continent - then pick the country - then even the area - and there is a long long long page of photos. They feel personal.

My personal favourites are
Whaling in Georgia
Ghost towns in Kansas
Icebergs in Iceland
Saint Pierre

You could spend hours delving into this. Amazing.
The pictures above are taken from his website, I hope he doesn't mind.
