Revenir is the photo blog of Stephen Lawler. For the time being, I reside in Santa Clara, California.
Welcome... This site is a simple collection of images captured throughout the course of my various walkabouts. I'd be honored if you would leave comments or reflections on any pages that move you. My hope is that I provide you with an opportunity to share in the beauty of a few of the magnificent places I've had the fortune to experience.

More often than not, the most inspiring images are derived from and reflect remote, inaccessible, and wild places: literally a world apart from the destructive influence of industrial civilization. Our collective survival depends upon remembering our interdependence with nature, and not in the delusion that we are superior to or separate from it.

You're welcome to download, link to, or otherwise use any of the images here under the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (CC BY-SA 4.0). If you'd like even larger versions than found here, send me an email at revenir@myprivacy.ca: it would be my pleasure to share the images with you. This site provides RSS, Atom, and RSS Media feeds.

A properly adjusted monitor can make a significant difference in the perceived quality of the images viewed. You should be able to distinguish each tone in the following image, particularly at the ends of the scale. Generally, you should increase the contrast to the maximum, and then vary the brightness accordingly.
