This stereo pair was taken by my wife at a balloon festival held near Brookhaven, NY in 1999. It was taken using my Sputnik Medium Format stereo camera. Jim Harp kindly scanned the original mounted slide with his Epson 2540 scanner. The original scan has been reduced in size using the Gimp.

I have a blog that features some of my recent photography.

I'm the Systems Administrator at a small brokerage firm on Wall Street.

In past lives I've been a programmer, or the systems administrator at various Wall Street companies, a consulting/software development firm, a law firm, a major NYC ISP, and at various companies in the garment industry.

When I can get out of the office I have far too many hobbies taking up my time. My main interests are photography (this is the most frequently updated of my pages) and astronomy. Since so many of the local star parties are clouded out, my sweetie likes to tell me that as long as I'm spending so much time watching clouds that I should take up meteorology.

On May 17, 1997 my sweetheart and I were married. You can see some of the snapshots on her page.

On September 19, 1996 I became an uncle. You can see photographs of Tristan Patrick Reynolds in my family album.

On June 20, 2001 I became a father. Grace Kathleen Reynolds will have a nicer web page as soon as her father stops hogging the keyboard and lets her have some of the fun.

On December 5, 2003 my second daughter, Margaret Anne Reynolds was born. Daddy is a slug, so her web page doesn't have much on it.

My sweetie has gotten me involved with The Society for Creative Anachronism. I'm interested in early telescopic astronomy and hope to build a Galilean telescope. Anyone with information on early astronomical instruments (astrolabes, sundials, or telescopes) is welcome to contact me at the email address below.

I've been building plastic models since I was a kid. This lead to my training to be an aircraft mechanic, and studying electrical engineering and computer science in college. Although I didn't become either a mechanic, or an engineer, the training has left be with an interest in working with my hands. I build telescopes, and electronics. At some point I hope to have my miniboards wired to my home page.

I'm also a Born Again Rocketeer, and if the NYC Section of the National Association of Rocketry gets off the ground maybe I'll get to launch some electronic payloads.
