Europe in fifteen photos

I shot a lot of photos in Europe. The collection is available at http://www.flickr.com/photos/domesticat/collections/72157631548498001/ and is broken down by city and by theme, but since I’ve been asked a few times, I thought I’d pick just a few photos to tell the overarching story.
