An odyssey of discoveries – in picture tags…
A picture is a fact. (Ludwig Wittgenstein)
Nowadays, one would truly believe that the 20th century Austrian philosopher was wrong about this statement. However, on this website pictures are facts, not fake. With a few exceptions.
In any case, the size of the words in the tag cloud below indicates the number of images attached to a tag. A click on any of the tags brings up a set of thumbnail pictures. From that point, you may browse more tagged pictures by simply viewing the thumbnails, or click to enlarge them in a pop-up window. My advice is to first right-click a tag and open it in a new window or tab. The images are unsorted.

Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. (Cesare Pavese)
