Hi, I am Sig (junge1),
I found out about this site from my brother Wolfgang (billcody).
My interests are in geography/history/astronomy and everything related to it. Topographic features, weather related phenomena, both meteorologic and climatologic, mapping, remote sensing, photogrammetry, air photo interpretation, and travel. Also aircraft, the faster the better, sports cars, and Formula 1 racing.
I use photography primarily for documenting these interests. I have no apptitude nor interest for artistic creations.
Originally from Berlin, Germany, came to the United States via Canada. Spent 30 years in the US Air Force/Arizona Air National Guard. Received a BS in Geography from Arizona State University (1979). Attended University of Georgia and received a MA in Geography (Urban Planning) from ASU in 1982.
Was hired by the Defense Mappiong Agency for a cartographer position, but despite the fact that I had a background investigation run on me by the OSI I could not get the position because it required a CSI clearance, and that in turn requires that all immediate family members are US citizens.
Worked for the Arizona Department of Water Resources for 23 years in the Adjudication Division (Litigation Support), Hydrology Division, and Engineering Division (Dam Safety). Live in Phoenix, Arizona. My uploads are usually travel related,
