Mission
Since April 2001, Massroads.com, Granitehighways.com and Mainehighways.com have featured scenic and ground transportation infrastructure photography within New England. I concentrate on photographing bridges, railroad equipment, roads, energy and industrial infrastructure, big signs and unusual buildings, and anything else interesting I find along the way.

The National Bridge Inventory data for all 50 states is available here at Nationalbridges.com and made accessible through my online analysis query. I obtain the National Bridge Inventory database from the Federal Highway Administration each year and I convert it to a relational MySQL database for online use on my websites.

Photography
All content is my original photography. My primary camera is a Canon Digital XTi, but I have many photos in here from Olympus cameras like the C-5050 and C-3000, and a Pentax Optio. There is some 35mm slide film photography here as well.

Digital images have been resized and compressed for the web on a couple of older HP Brio computers using ImageMagick, XV and Gimp on Linux. HTML and server-side PHP scripts including the search engines and display scripts are written and edited from scratch using vi. The NBI Bridge Database and my photograph database are relational MySQL databases.

Alexander SvirskyMy most active photography often happens when I am doing something else that I thoroughly enjoy, exploring New England by car. I will drive 200 miles in a single day stopping frequently to fill up my digital cards with hundreds of images of bridges, trains and roadside views.

Home
I am based in Andover, Massachusetts.

What Else?
I have chauffeured limousines in Boston, all over New England and in New York City. I have also worked more than ten years with multi-level database systems for the retail and banking industries, for direct marketing, geographic information systems (GIS) and weather graphics display systems. Currently, I work with data in the list services and direct marketing industry.
