I've been editing wikipedia since 2009 and have collected here pages that I created, heavily edited and to which I've added my own photographs.
Pages I created
Sarah Cowell Le Moyne, an late 19th, early 20th century stage actress whose portrait hangs in the Brooklyn Museum.
The Taylor Map of New York, an epic engraved map from 1879 that covers every street in Manhattan and much of Brooklyn Heights.
58 Joralemon Street, a row house in Brooklyn Heights that serves as "the world’s only Greek Revival subway ventilator". It is a fairly well kept facade that hides an emergency exit and ventillation system for the MTA.
Pages featuring my images
Intel Paragon, one of the first parallel computers that I used. My team at Sandia wrote a lightweight kernel, named SUNMOS and later Puma, that became the de-facto OS for the Paragon and the start of my career in high performance computing. I'm reflected in the photo of the front panel.
IBM T221 LCD monitor. I use one at work and am amazed that IBM had 4k, 200 DPI displays available in early 2000, while the rest of the industry had stagnated at 1080p. The wikipedia image is my monitor showing xterm at "normal" resolution.
Rue du Chat-qui-Pêche, the narrowest street in Paris. Unfortunately the street art has been painted over; I'm glad I saw it when I was on a holiday in Paris.

Canon EF 85mm, both the f/1.8 and f/1.2, are great lenses.
|HP2100 front panel||Playing a game on the HP2100|
A functional HP 2100 was featured at VCS East and I had to take photographs of it.
