I have had a hobby interest in general photography since the mid-1970’s, with a minor use for technical photography in some of my work. These days my interests are strictly personal and met mainly by medium and large format cameras, hence much of the content in these pages.

My later paid work involved a lot of computer integration and computer systems management, and that is where the interest in 3D printing originated.

Site history

This site, and the associated domains (gapatterson.org and gapatterson.com), has gone through several revisions, and at least three hosting services. The original was hand-coded HTML, then moving to static site generators with Webgen, and now being re-implemented with Hugo.

Most of the content on the old site was already in Markdown format, and transferred easily to Hugo with the addition of some Hugo Front Matter. Porting the Mamiya TLR pages was hardest, as the source document was in Microsoft DOCX format with some really large tables. New material has been originated in Markdown.

This site does not use databases or executable code, and does not request user input.

Themes: This site uses the hugo-snap-gallery by Max Mehl mail @ mehl.mx under the MIT license for some photographic pages. The main theme is ‘basic’ from the Hugo repository, with various modifications.
