About me[edit]

I've uploaded more than a thousand self-created images. Most were created digitally, but some are scans of my slide 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 Canon 6D and Canon 7D SLRs, though my old Canon 400D still sees some use along with a Canon SL-1, as well as compact cameras. Lenses include Canon EF-S 10-22, EF-S 15-85, EF 17-40, EF 24-105, EF 100 macro, EF 40 STM and EF 100-400. I recently acquired a Canon TS-E 24mm II tilt-shift lens and am learning how to use it. When I have the time I scan my old slides and film with a Nikon ED5000 film scanner. I mostly use Photoshop CC for post-processing.
