Welcome to In The Rest Of The World!
The Grimes family has taken all of the photographs on this website over the course of 30 years. Over that time span, the family has traveled to over 100 countries on 6 continents with camera in hand. Whether it be Al, Nancy, Reed, Andrew, or Alison – a Grimes family member is responsible for all the images appearing on this site. Several of the images have appeared in publications such as the Lexington Herald-Leader, the Mayo Clinic Alumni Bulletin, and The Version – won awards from Abercrombie & Kent – and been exhibited locally at multiple locations including the Lexington Public Library. All animal images have been captured in the wild, not in captive environments, and are presented in their true form.
As a physician and travel agent team, Al and Nancy have worked in and visited over 100 countries on 6 continents. Interested in documenting the people, wildlife, and scenery of these locations, Al and Nancy enjoy displaying their images and sharing them with others. Using In The Rest Of The World, they both hope to share their vast experiences with a wider audience.
Following in Al and Nancy’s footsteps, Reed, Alison, and Andrew Grimes have traveled the globe, each falling in love with different parts of the world. Their passion for travel coupled with their interest in photography has led all of them to further explore the intricacies of cultures throughout the world.
We hope you enjoy this website and find the Animals, Nature, People, and Places as fascinating as we all do. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
