My Dear Visitors,
My name is Tom but this is the easiest thing to say about myself.
Going deeper into details, I am of European background, however since quite some time, together with my wife Natalie, we live a Nomads' life, trying to share time between family (parents and already grown-up children) and traveling around the World.
As the result the only fixed address we have is our web address at:
Given my age “privilege” you can also call me "Grey-Hair Nomad" if that gives you friendlier and warmer feelings (I will feel honored by your calling me this way, so your choice).
Our website,"Amazing-World-in-Free-Stock-Pictures-and-Photos.com" is dedicated to all those that can and want to cherish the seemingly unmatched beauty of Mother Nature, as well as the charm, ingenuity and power of man-made objects.
With very few exceptions, the site does not include pictures or photos of people, and this is for a very good reason. Although people from all around the world present a formidable source of variety, diversity, and first of all pure beauty, we believe that presenting people in pictures also raises the difficult legal questions and potential problems that this web-site is trying to avoid.
The site provides free access to literally thousands of pictures and photos from all around the world. Due to bandwidth limitations, the site contains pictures and photos with a limited resolution and size (typically between 5kB to 40kB), however each picture and photo is accompanied with a link to an external hosting site (Image Shack - http://imageshack.us/), where corresponding full size original pictures and photos are located and available for your enjoyment and download (see How to ?).
With the exception of special galleries of pictures offered by external authors, the site does not watermark content.
If you intend to use any of pictures provided by this website for "outside" of your office or computer applications, it is required that:
The "Amazing-World-in-Free-Stock-Pictures-and-Photos.com" is organized in two types of mainstream presentations:
a) by countries, regions and cities (for example USA but also Hawaii, New York City etc…)
b) by themes (for example trees, flowers, animals, architecture, street lamps etc…)
The same pictures can be sometimes included in both presentations, although possibly under a different name.
Both presentations are accompanied by short memories and descriptions bringing some interesting stories about a given scene or place and in general bringing some extra "life" and emotions to the world of pictures and photos.

Dear Visitor, welcome to the Amazing World ……
Navigating throughout the pages of this website you will discover breathtaking places.....
To joyfully begin this voyage of discovery you may first want to chew over the following thoughts:
When we lack the proper time for the simple pleasures of life…. then we have missed the purpose of life (Ed Hays).
Make the most of every sense, glory in all of the pleasures and beauty which the world reveals to you (Hellen Keller).
Hopefully, most of you will find here something that will make up your day…:-)
Some, encouraged by findings may even decide to follow Mark Twains’ advise:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover …
All the best!
P.S If on these pages you will find something that will bring a smile of happiness on your face, that means I accomplished the task.
In return you can give me a favor, please offer this smile to your family and friends….
The smile is contagious!
