“STUDY THE PAST……..
IF YOU WOULD DIVINE THE FUTURE”

Confucius

This is the inside of one of the beautiful historic rooms in Kloster St Georgen, in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland.
This is the luxury ‘penthouse suite’ of the head monk in those days – there was a whole suite for him. The ordinary monks had very sparse living and sleeping quarters.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 9 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.

    So beautiful Charmiene and I simply adored the monk in the cloister as well. There is something about the space and time for contemplation that has such enormous appeal for me. You’ve captured the essence of that in these images so very well. xoxox
