Welcome to Chris Butler's web site.

Hi, I'm Chris and live with my lovely wife, Valorie and our handsome puss, Reginald in the west-end of Ottawa, Canada. We are located in the nation's Capital in a community known as Kanata.

No end of cool stuff here. Among Chris' favourite things are:

Model Railroading in HO, Sn3 and On3 scales and gauges with a special emphasis on 3' narrow gauge in O-scale (On3) somewhere in the Pacific Northwest region during the 1880 - 1920 era.

Home computing, networking and the Internet.

Photography in Digital SLR (both in full frame and "1.6x crop" view) and occasionally in 35mm film SLR formats. You can view some of my digital photography by visiting my Google+ Picasa Web albums Internet cloud.

Baroque classical music, Jazz, Blues Rock, modern and classic Rock (such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Free, Tom Petty, B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles etc.), as well, recent Robert Plant, Roger Waters and David Gilmour releases.
