I've been digging through a rescued HD that had crashed. I just put all the resqued files onto another one and said to myself "I'll get back to it some day." Well today is that day. Found some old shots from Oklahoma with my dad and i playing golf, and a nice old shot of a friend of mine... then there it was, mislabeled and alone... the lost Vidalia Onion Festival Airshow pics from April of 2008. Here are three - 2 Fat Alberts and a Panchito.

"thin may be in... but fat's where it's at!"

Jon: As much as I am a Fat Albert fan, your b&w conversion of Panchito is absolutely dynamite!

Wonderful photos over the last few pages. I really like that Fat Al shot

Here's a stat: suitcase: 17 lbs, camera case: 37 lbs.

Alliance, here I come!

Looking forward to putting faces to the names.

Should have asked earlier, now that I think about it, but does any one of us have significant experience with home theater, or projectors and screens and that kind of thing?

I've been stuck buying stuff for my new office all day today, and I'm having to learn about projection screens: matte white, high-contrast grey, gain, lateral angular offset losses, drop, mount, traps, trims, and whatever else. My head is swimming, but hopefully I've finally picked out a projector (Epson 8350), screen (Draper HC Grey 65" Tab-Tensioned Ceiling Mount), and the requisite cables to string everything together. Still have to finish up the screen selection tomorrow, but at least I've made some progress.

Arrived at Alliance. I started adding up all the camera gear in my luggage and almost fainted when I thought about what I was toting. Definitely a new high water mark for $$$ shuttling around in airplane baggage.

Skys are severe clear here. Place is already well setup, hopped on over to the Commercial terminal and grabbed a few statics with my u4/3rds. flickr upload below, noisy high ISO, but figured somebody needs to kick it off.

Just got to Keystone, FL for an aerobatic contest that my aero club hosts! Lots of cool airplanes and unusual attitudes. Will be sure to post pictures!

Excellent Fat Albert Shot Jon!

@Rodolfo - I work as an event technician at school and have experience with theater systems, projectors and screens and the sort. What kind of help are you looking for?

You guys and gal handing out such nice compliments is quite humbling. Thanks - Thanks a ton!
Knee deep in "engagement" pics tonight - sweet couple... they deserve a better photog than I for such a momentous occasion! Since they're getting married in Montana, they wanted better engagement pics than wedding pics and had them shot in color season in Tennessee... she doesn't look like a B-25 so i'm in over my head!

Those of you at Alliance, enjoy the show, have fun, shoot lots and bring back some trophies! Wish I coulda been there again this year - but it wasn't to be.

I WILL however be at Pensacola after all and the "usual suspects" that I get to hang out with down here in the southland will have to put up with me for one more show.
I plan to be down for the Thursday practice if i can find where everybody is hanging out - PM me if you know.

I did some research on home theater earlier this year, and I agree with you the the Epson 8350 is at the top of a short list at its price point...and I'm not willing to go enough higher to make a discernible difference. Screens I never did figure out.

You know you are tired when....you totally miss the scenario after the first question...will look into it. Though on first glance, I agree with Steve.

Jbear - Fat Albert with JATOs, awesome. It's a shame that they don't run those, anymore. I have vague memories of them from when I was a kid, but I hadn't seen the Blues in forever, up until last year, after they stopped using them. Ah well...

AFAIK, the DoD flat ran out of JATO bottles...

In other news, I went way out on a limb and entered some images in Aviation Week's photo contest. I just got an email informing me I landed 3rd Place in the Defense category with this image:


It will be published in their annual contest issue at the end of the year along with a mug shot and a short bio. I get $100 as well...

Knock me over with a feather!

bags are packed, alarm is set, I'm flying out at 6:55am (with going through customs that means I'll have to be at the airport before 5:00am).

Look forward to meeting all of you.
