Just another thing I love about The Lone Star. Are we ready to secede yet? Can't be far from it.


Agreed on ALL counts. I can't wait.

Jim, a simple quote by a former chief of staff explains it all. "Never let a good crisis go to waste" and they aren't. It is what they see as a moment to pounce and with a president that has no election to lose now, it's time for them to go nutso. I don't wanna get overly political here (that's what my facebook page is for) but I agree with ya. As for the Cabela's part, hehe yeah I ordered from ammo to go, they have a 1 month back order due to a manpower shortage. So you could say in a way he is creating jobs with this, even if they are temporary.

JW: "We're certainly as polarized as we've ever been in my lifetime, but I keep thinking that just our common bond as humans and a minimum of common sense, should give us enough tools and motivation to find the middle ground. I don't see it and the longer it goes, the less I think it's possible."

The new paradigm: Common Sense vs. Utopia...you know who will win in the end. Patience is a virtue.

I beg to differ.

We all have our bad habits, weaknesses, and what-have-you. We all have things we could learn and/or improve. Even Shooter still hasn't learned the basic self-preservation required to duck. But I don't think there's any question that you're one of the best photographers in our group and that I could learn a lot from you.

Intestines aren't enough for that, it requires suspended spheres of steel...

Here's a bit of a puzzle for you all I haven't been able to find with Google. This is the prop on the US built DH-4 in the Dayton Air Force Museum. A US built British designed airplane used a French designed and patented propeller? Can that be right?

BTW, the big shot is a Nikon D800 file, handheld at 140 knots at 8,500'. Standing two feet away you can practically read the highway signs. I acted like it was business as usual as my client ooohed and aaaahed, but behind the scenes I was amazed by how well the image held up. This was the acid test for my D800 and their 24-70, my hat is off to Nikon.

What were the actual printing specs Jim?

Size Vs Print Resolution?

Dunno exactly, cuz I have "people" who worry about that stuff...... The booth is 12' x about 8' tall. My guess is the aerial image is around 8 x 10. The dpi on anything over 40" goes down to 150 dpi I believe. I do know that the file could have gone several times the size and still held up at viewing distances over two feet.

Always nice to see a project like that booth come out even better than one thought. Attaboy, Shooter.

Looks like polished aluminium has went out of fashion in Texas.
