| I guess you could say that I'm an advanced amateur photographer. I've been taking pictures since the late 1950's and I even did my own darkroom work way back then. So the photos here cover many, many years. They're what I consider to be some of my best although my best is not anything special. I enjoyed taking them and I still enjoy looking at them. I hope you do too.
I'm very proud of many of them and not so proud of others. They're a mix of older film-based photos and newer digital photos, many of which I copied from slides and negatives (I use the Acer Scanwit 2720S slide and negative scanner and the Epson 636U Flatbed Scanner). My Minolta D7 digital camera was great and I enjoyed it for several years but I finally went to a Panasonic FX-20 5MP digital camera with image stabilization and a 12X optical zoom lens last year. Perhaps I'll be able to justify a digital SLR in the future but not soon.My wife, who I've had to drag screaming and kicking into the digital camera world, got a Canon Powershot A520, 4MP digital camera for Christmas and now is a true believer. I doubt that she'll ever use her old Olympus film cameras again she's so taken with the size, the quality and the number of images she gets on a 512MB secure digital memory card. She now realizes that she won't have to waste so many shots, shooting duplicates and triplicates of each image.
Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy your visit. If you're a photographer I'd appreciate hearing your comments regarding my photographs. If you're a Barham and/or a genealogist I'd like to hear your comments about the information herein. Enjoy and drop me a line.

The photographs reproduced here are in jpg format, highly compressed, which affects the quality of the image. The originals are high quality tiffs, which are too large and too slow to open in a web browser, even with a high speed connnection. I used a terrific album generating application called JAlbum (along with a nice "skin" application called Chameleon) and can highly recommend it. I should say that JAlbum (or this particular skin) works better with Internet Explorer. When viewed with Firefox "strange" things can happen to the images. Again, thanks for looking. Dan Barham
