About Me

📌 Please note that I cannot respond to any requests or enquiries. I don't see any messages that are sent to me via this site. 📌

This is not from any dissatisfaction on my part; it is simply that, a decade on, my interests and priorities have changed, and the need to deal promptly with Geograph-related emails had become too much of a bind (I do use email for other necessary matters, but can go many days without checking it). I still sporadically submit photos, and am grateful for the interest shown in them; they average about 80 views each (respectable for this site), and 60 or more have 1000+ views.

Re-use of my photos is fine if they are properly credited (see the "How to reuse" link on each photo page); there is no need to ask. And my shared descriptions are there to be used by other contributors if they so wish.

Of my 12 submitted articles ( Link ), the one on the location of Pillanflatt Farm Link contains some original research, while the one on Carman Hill Link makes some new connections.
