The back cover of Francis Tapon's next book will have a small photo of him in a corner. Which photos would be the best author portrait for the book?

IMPORTANT! To vote for a photo, you must vote from that photo's page! To do that:

  1. Click on the photo.
  2. See it enlarged.
  3. Click on the Facebook Like Button on that page.
  4. Vote for as many photos as you like!

You can also click on this page's Like Button, but you'll just be saying that you like this voting page and not any particular photo.

Tjasa Slana, a Slovenian, took all these photos in late August 2010.

Thank you for helping to design the cover of The Hidden Europe!

I had a glitch and all the previous voting was lost. The number of Facebook "Likes" reset to zero, so that's why the numbers are low again.

I added the last photo, the one with a orange jacket, because several people like it. Timothy Archibald took it 3 years ago for a Backpacker magazine article. If it's hugely popular, I'll use it.

If you can't vote because you're not one of the half billion people with a Facebook account, then please email your vote to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
