Dr John E Peterson Photos Gallery

 An interesting and rather amazing John E Peterson photos gallery, thanks to Dr John E. Peterson american, historian and political analyst of the contemporary Arabian Peninsula and Gulf and author of scholarly articles and history books.

 John is also a friend. We met in London, England many years ago and we sort of kept in touch. Thanks to John who travels a lot, you and I can visit many different cities and one US state in less than five minutes. Enjoy!

 About thIs photo John wrote: "The bridge over the River Seine in Paris is Pont des Arts and the Louvre is in the background. 

 I took that photo because it had become a very popular place for couples to attach a padlock to the railings and throw the key into the river to show their love.  Unfortunately, thousands of padlocks made the bridge very heavy and there was worry about it collapsing. 

 The city would periodically cut off the padlocks but they always grew back. So sometime later, the city took down the railings and put up new ones that prevented anything from being attached to them."

 I don't know about you but, going through this JEP photos gallery John made possible, gave me something like a "moment of escape from toil and trouble". Photos that made me dream about evasion from ... just about everything, but just for a little while. 

 In other words I need a vacation. That said, I hope you enjoy your "trip" to the eight cities, six countries and one U.S. state Dr John E. Peterson visited in the past few years and was nice enough to share some of his pictures with us.
