I spent most of my life being a physicist specializing in the high-speed photography of blast waves in air, work that took me to various remote locations where large explosive tests were conducted.

Back home, at the University of Victoria, I analyzed thousands of those pictures and wrote software to help first responders deal with explosive threats. Now retired, I am satisfied taking fewer photos of friendlier subjects and not analyzing them much.
