About the website

I created this website primarily to display my photographic works and to publish various articles.
However, over the years, it has evolved into a far broader presentation of my hobbies.
During the nearly 20+ year journey, it has evolved into a collection of opinion pieces, various articles on my many hobbies and projects, reference materials, tutorials, astronomical observatory content, a testbed for my different technology skill sets used in my career within Information Technology and ultimately a representation of my brand on the web.
The site has been offline for the past three years as I got tired of managing it and felt that the content was becoming stale, irrelevant and ultimately not worth the effort to maintain.
With the Pandemic and having ample time to focus on hobbies and recharge my interests, it felt the right time to bring the site back, albeit with a completely different focus.
In March of 2021, I decided to rework the entire website and remove ancient articles that are no longer valid in technology.
I am emphasizing my photography, my culinary journey (and the book I am writing on the subject), and the many projects such as my custom cutting boards and my retro arcade cabinet.
Additionally, I am entirely revisiting how I display and sell my photography as of Sept 2021.
A new, bolder strategy is almost ready.
Photography, Travel, Cooking and Technology
This website is primarily devoted to my photographic arts and my other hobbies.
There is an ever-increasing amount of articles and posts focused on computing and the culinary arts.
Looking for information on my career and who I am as a Technologist ??? read more on the About the IT Professional page.
Living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, has offered me the opportunity to capture a great deal of outdoor imagery on film.
Indeed, the proximity to the Rocky Mountains has influenced the subjects that I prefer to cover.
While the outdoors has been my primary influence, I have also covered a significant number of sports; hockey (the great Canadian pastime), speed skating, snow & water skiing, to name a few.
I have also been privileged to travel the world, in turn presenting me with the opportunity to sharpen my landscape, travel and street photography. New imagery was harder to obtain when the Pandemic hit, and travel effectively came to a grinding halt. That said, I have had a year to work on the vast existing imagery in the vault; stay tuned for new posts throughout the fall and winter of 2021–2022.
Stay awhile and explore
I encourage you to discover the various elements of the website, especially the photo galleries and the technology articles — the cuisine portion of the site is under heavy re-development and is scheduled to launch in late Nov 2021.
It continues to expand with an ever-evolving set of information (photos, articles, opinion pieces, etc.). It acts as a jumping-off point to my other web presences — LinkedIn, Instagram, etc.
For those interested in the imaging equipment used to produce a photograph (and, where possible, the settings of the equipment), you can find the information for this on the detailed Exhibition pages while viewing each image.
I encourage you to stay awhile, enjoy the site (especially the photographs).
