The /architecture website showcases my photography of homes, buildings and other physical spaces. These are a mix of properties I have been invited to photograph, as well as buildings and spaces that otherwise interest me.

Social Media

I've moved to Mastodon for social networking. My photos also get syndicated to Glass, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn - so you can get the latest wherever you hang out, but I don't personally visit these sites often/ever.

You can also add the RSS Feed to your newsreader and get the latest picture updates in your news feed.

Besides my photography on photog.social, I also maintain a Mastodon account on famichiki.jp, where I talk about life in Japan, US & Japanese politics, privacy, web, design, and music.
