The Occasional Tourist • A Travel Photo Album

About This Site

This site is a collection of travel photos and writing by Jacqueline Kira Hamilton (that's me). I like traveling, though I don't do it as often as I might like (hence "occasional", but aren't we all...) Since I got my digital camera, I've had great fun taking photos of the places I've visited. Photos are certainly the best of souvenirs... you can keep them forever, and they cement the otherwise fleeting memory of a place. And they're great for sharing, because someone else can look at a photo and think, hey, that looks neat, I want to see that myself! And be inspired to visit a place. I've certainly felt that way, after looking at photos and movies of places I've yet to visit.

As for the site itself, it's running a custom photo album program I wrote, using Perl, Mason, CSS and JavaScript. I've written several books about CGI programming, if you're interested in learning how to write your own web applications.
