Welcome to Villa Ndio!  Here you will find collections of photographs taken by me, Ralph (“Peppy”) Doggett. I am a semi-professional photographer who loves to travel, meet new people, and explore natural and man-made beauty.  I also love to hang out with my delightful wife Kathy Hagen at our 300+ year old house in the South of France, named, you guessed it, Villa Ndio.

This site includes an ongoing photo blog displaying my most recent photos, and galleries that display collections of photos from various destinations around the world, plus collections of flora and fauna.


Ralph (“Peppy”) Doggett is an avid semi-professional photographer with a sharp eye on a wide variety of subjects.  Explore his work in these pages, which include a photo post page with his latest work, and portrait galleries with expressive images of friends, acquaintances, a few extended family members, and other interesting people. Visit the Art and Travel pages to see collections of Peppy’s photos taken while visiting museums and destinations near and far.  See a list of Peppy’s photography gear here.



The music that amuses Villa Ndio

Reach out from here for Peppy’s collections of Folk, Rock, Blues, Jazz and Classical Music, and some playlists that he has put together.




I love to travel!  Here you can find some photo essays and blog posts from my experiences in some of my favorite destinations. Just click on an image in the mosaic below. (Pages for some destinations are still under development).
