About me


I've uploaded more than five thousand self-created images. Most were created digitally, but some are scans of my slide and negative archives dating back to the 1970s. Most of my work has been in architecture, particularly relating to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. I've been working to identify and upload public-domain images to help illustrate articles.

I understand French fairly well (to fr-2 level), but I don't write French well, so I'm keeping the Babel to fr-1.

I mainly use a Canon 5Ds, a Canon 6D and a Canon 7D Mk II. Lenses include EF 17-40, EF 24-105, EF 100 macro, EF 40 STM, EF 100-400 and a Canon TS-E 24mm II tilt-shift lens. When I have the time I scan my old slides and film with a Nikon ED5000 film scanner, but have recently switched to using a Canon 7DII in a copy stand with the 100mm macro and an extension tube, with good results. I've also started using my phone camera, a Google Pixel 6 Pro, which gives excellent results. I mostly use Photoshop CC for post-processing.

Now-retired cameras include a Canon 400D (which shot three of my featured pictures), a Canon 7D and a variety of compact cameras.
