Wideimaging Photography - Architecture Landmarks and Neighborhoods - Wide Angle Hasselblad

Your Bio

These galleries contain a growing collection of neighborhood images and architecture. The Hasselblad Super Wide Camera was used for most of the content and continues to be my camera of choice, hense the moniker wideimaging. I have also expanded the collection to include photos that have been loaned to me for restoration, if they compliment the gallery or add to the story behind a picture (noted as pre 1970). I continue to review and re-post photos, as both enhancement software and scanning hardware are always improving. That some pictures make for better history than art has been part of the criteria for their inclusion here.
A little about myself:
As a civil engineer with a background in imaging I have sought to photograph elements that tie neighborhoods together with their landmarks. Now in its sixth year with over 15,000 visits a month, this site has helped me to define an advocacy for landmarks preservation.
