As my handle suggests, I am a Chartered Chemical Engineer from the UK. I have a full-time job, which I enjoy and which sometimes takes me to other parts of the world. This does not leave me much time, so I cannot offer to help in the great wiki projects, but I can upload some stuff from time to time, and edit where I might have something to contribute. I have a substantial library of books (remember those?), mainly technical, and some quite old, so try to substantiate my contributions. I have in the past spoken foreign languages, but no longer have sufficient fluency to be useful. Likewise I had technical drawing skills, but am out of practice, and lacking time.

Photographs[edit]

I try to provide photographs which are reasonable in their own right. To get a decent one of a particular building or scene often means waiting for the right time of year, time of day and weather conditions. I take care not to park my own car in view, and avoid others as much as possible (which sometimes means abandoning a shoot, particularly if there is a brightly coloured vehicle obstructing the view). I generally take a larger view and crop it. I smudge out vehicle number plates and people's faces if recognisable.Chemical Engineer (talk) 22:55, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
