Will Maupin, User:SpokaneWilly, is a freelance journalist who writes for the Spokane, Washington-based newspaper Inlander.

He's edited Wikipedia since 2005, and also contributes many photos to Commons. He regularly takes photos of sites on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and other local sites in the Inland Northwest region. In a recent article he declared his plan "to visually document our region for Wikipedia" this summer.

Spokane is located between mountain ranges and only gets 16.5 inches of rain each year. But it does not have a water problem, as documented by Maupin's photos. The Spokane River runs right though the city.

So he takes lots of photos of bridges.

He also likes to document many of the city's gathering places.

Churches, houses, and local institutions are among his favorite subjects.

As he wrote in his column:

I love your photographic style, SpokaneWilly. It's just so mesmerizing. I especially love your first photo from the other news section. It's hard to look away from it. SilverserenC 17:16, 4 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
