Messing about in Photoshop; probably far too early in the morning...

Thanks Shooter but I think it could be better...

It needed a little up-rezzing right off the bat, but I think I overextended it a bit. Need to work on that aspect. The sky is a little too much as well. It doesn't really feel like what that time of the evening actually looked like (SOOC it's really flat...)

Well, that's why we're here. Try, learn, re-try, re-learn... Wash / Rinse / Repeat!

I am twice blessed that I live in AZ and get the opportunity to stand next to Jay from time to time. Clearly I'm hoping a little bit of his talent will rub-off. Great, great work my brother

Just to be sure Jeff, I'd pack some HandyWipes...

You and Jay mesmerize me with your work Jeff. When Scott Slocum and I were taxiing out in the A36 and I saw all my friends poised to capture what I could not, I had a very warm feeling wash over me knowing that anything that was about to happen would be exceptionally rendered, by my good friends. And................it was!!

I got the distinct impression that we all felt like part of the "team" and wanted to bag shots that might be deemed meaningful in the grand scheme of Saturday evening at Alliance.

You know that one Uncle that nobody really talks about...?

Uhhh Jay, if no one talks about that one uncle, then how would you know that he is your uncle?

Friday at AFW certainly had some "character" to it...

I have long enjoyed the strengthening relationships here, they mean a great deal to me. Some might think it odd, with a life so full of blessings and relationships, that this forum and the people it has brought into my life have such a significance, but they can think what they want, it's true. There is a plan afoot in this group, I have no more idea what that plan is than I did the day that I tossed a couple of Mustang pictures into the mix, but I do know that we have something special here. Some have gone, and that's too bad, but that too was the way it was supposed to go I guess, the folks who are here are the ones that are supposed to be here.

I can't explain exactly how I felt when we taxied by all of you as you readied your substantial, collective creative talents, but it was one of great affection, for you as individuals, it was one of gratitude, that I am blessed to call you friends, it was one of joy, that I had the ability to get you into positions your talents deserve. It was also one of satisfaction, because I knew you'd all create amazing imagery. How's that for a few seconds of taxiing!

Some days I don't think our big deal is ever actually going to get funded, no matter how close it seems to be, and JR and I are worn slick with the constant back and forth it's taken to get it this far. One thing I can tell you is that if it does in fact go, we'll all have more days like we had during AFW week, just enjoying each other and doing what we love with people we care about.

+1 Jim,

Life is about the people and journey, not the destination. We will all get to the end someday, and at least for me just the memory of conversations, the photo's, and the good will on this site will bring me smiles. Still plan to join your fall party one of these years to learn how to shoot better, but it will be all the people that make it.

Dan

Friday definitely was a case of trying to make lemonade from lemons.

For me, it's the journey, the people and the opportunities. I got to ride in 172DL on the way up and back with Glenn and Nadya. Met the people who take the photos I love to look at; I got to do my first air to air in the Skyhawk and with Gunny's 180 that, as he said "gotta have the ugliest paint job on the planet". Heck, it could have been uglier, and I wouldn't have had any less fun, it was a blast; fact is, I think it looked great in the air! He and Glenn flew a great formation for this newbe and I loved it. Good stories too!

On the subject of importance in the scheme of things. My Granddaughter Faith had a little friend who was very special needs. Faith apparently gravitated toward this little boy in her class while most of the other kids moved the other direction. The boys parents told Jennifer that she meant the world to their son and her kindness meant the world to him, and to them. The little guy loved the ocean and whales, so his parents took him to Maui this week to be near them both. He had had a heart transplant and for some reason he was rejecting his new heart, complicating his other challenges. He wasn't eating so his Mom and Dad took him in and the Dr. said he needed a feeding tube immediately because he was so weak. They sedated him to install the tube, and he never woke up. His ashes, at least a portion of them will be scattered over the ocean and mammals he loved in a day or so. those of you inclined to prayer, please do, those parents have now endured the unthinkable, and, without Christ, the unendurable. Faith is too little to take comfort in this, but what more could you ask than to be told in these circumstances that you made a monumental difference in someone's life.

I was feeling a little down today, in retrospect I apologize Lord, my life is a cake walk.

A very sad story, we'll add prayers for your granddaughter, you and most of all for the young man's family. May God Bless them.
