- The Thumbnail Traveler
- Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Dessert menu at the Caffe Domiciano, Rome.
One of my favorite travel things to do is late-night dining under the stars
in an historic part of a wonderful city.
Oftentimes these are among the most memorable of moments.
I think we ordered gelato...and cappuccino, of course.

A very personal page today. Click on any image to enlarge.
As promised, here are a handful of shots from my
father's burial in Arlington National Cemetery.
He was laid to rest on January 5, 2018
This page is a tribute to him and to his memory.

One of dozens of Orca sculptures decorating the Victoria, BC waterfront a few years ago.
Decorating the downtown area of Victoria with orca sculptures has been a tradition for years. A newer installation has attracted some controversy.
This version dates from roughly 2005.
