Jerry, how are you getting along? Did the 20D come back from it's baptism? Hope things are on the uptick for all involved.

Thanks.

www.wsbtv.com has 2 of my pics on their main page. Hoping my old 20d survives. I haven't tried it yet.


sobering photos !! My thoughts to the families and community.

........ I'm a big advocate of BlackRapid ........ I started with and still have this unit

but also purchased the DR 4 I believe .. a double banger ..

I imagine there are other brands folks like, but regardless it's hard to beat these aids for carrying photojournalism type gear !

I hope your gear survived !

Assignment load permitting, I think I'll launch out into the target rich environment of the Great Northwest for a few days after ISAP. The Olympic Peninsula, Rainier, Boeing Field, weebeesee.

Even a flat show is better than no show.

Also, I don't think I will be able to swing ISAP this year in Seattle. Things could change, but not sure at this point. If not ISAP, I will see everyone at OSH13 for sure.

We were talking about North Dakota's oil boom the other day:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/03/magazine/north-dakota-went-boom.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0&hp

Long article that I think will run in the Sunday magazine this week. Despite the source, the first couple of pages looked fairly balanced, but not sure how the whole article turns out.

Mark


Thanks for sharing Mark .. I thought the reporter had a nice article. Along with the push for oil, he provided some details on the human sacrifice and also on the huge though minimum press oil leaks.

Two years ago I was home grabbin' a hot carmal roll .. sticky bun to many I imagine .. when the bus came in across the street .. this attractive petit but curvy gal nade her way across Hwy 3 in sunglasses and a Victoria Secret pajamma bottom -- wasn't to much of a feat .. though 2 lane maybe 30 cars an hour and only 1 lane from Canada to Rugby 43 miles ( it's only 2 lanes in a town of last 1/2 mile to where it meets hwy 2 ) - anyway, a great presence - definitely not shy when she easily got the attention of a waitress in a room to order a fast carry out before the bus left ....... and this ole single farmer struck up a conversation with her from his booth ( we're talking a small cafe folks .. lol ) and she says she's headed to Williston .. Williston .. what cha going to do there .. all the guys have left town and are working those oil well jobs ....... lol .. she just smiled and looked over at me when I couldn't help but chuckle as I was payin' my bill and she said Oh, she's gonna live with a GF and look for something in the area ............

And that part about those men looking for food and drink in the gas station with their sleep deprived looks / eyes ........ I've heard that from many as they run endless hours for the money and then become a statistic on the roads as mentioned ..

Any way .. Thanks for the link !!

Likewise! I have a DR-1 double strap and have manfroto monopod/tripod plates fitted with Blackrapid D-rings. Very comfortable setup and easy to switch to single camera too. Never looked back as soon as I tried it on

very cool glenn...as always.

I'm still debating which lens I'm going to put my name on for MotoGP. With bikes it takes a LOT more reach than the cars, at my local track I could shoot the cars with my 70-200 and get lots of good stuff, but to get the bike stuff that I like it was 400mm + and I can't imagine we're going to have the access at COTA that I had at our local track (just don't get hit...k have fun) so I'm still leaning towards renting the 600mm F/4.

Glenn, lovely image! I'll need to show this one to my son. He's been enthralled with the PBY Catalina of late. What make/model is this? I can't quite put my finger on it.

Maybe a Grumman Mallard?

Thanks for confirming Glenn. I had to go hunting the webs to find it.

That first image, back-lit with the fog, speaks to me. It just replaced Jim's iconic T-38 image as my background image!
