I take many building photos—very often of those that might fit into potential Wikipedia articles—and places that are little or not recorded, with any flora and stuff that catches my eye. I have used chiefly a Canon EOS 6D, and from July 2017 a Canon EOS 6D Mark II, and a Nikon Coolpix L810 or Canon PowerShot SX60 HS depending on circumstance, with some early pictures from a Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5. Some images are grabbed from my own hi-def vids, or are scans from older prints or film negatives taken with analogue cameras.
See full galleries here.

If anyone needs pictures of buildings and places in north to north-east London, west Essex or east Hertforshire, and also, when I can get there, of South Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire, East/West Sussex or East Kent, let me know. I can't of course promise, but I'll do my best if and when I have the time, particularly if they are for a Wikipedia article you are keen to develop. It would be best to contact me through my Wikipedia Talk Page here.

Need a file for hard copy publication?:
NB: an image converted by Wikimedia during upload, even the full size 'Original file', is noticeably of lower quality than the equivalent original.
Optimizing and file size reducing of camera-unsharpened RAW files is judged through a calibrated monitor, perhaps including noise reduction, colour balance and sharpening workflow. A similar workflow for scanned negatives produce the best compromise I can muster from often imperfect sources. For print media this optimizing could prove problematic depending on particular print output requirements. Where a RAW file exists I can supply the original in native full size format, or a Tif file of a scanner-unprocessed negative, to optimize by a third party for specific use in hard copy publication.
