Thanks Jim. Your interior architecture artwork makes those architects and craftsmen look genius. That is a beautiful kitchen and den, I could enjoy that setup.

Nick thanks for the photo of the Messanger. I hadn't even heard of them until seeing the R/C version but it was so pretty I just had to get some decent in flight shots. The builder obviously is into the little details that really show the passion some have when building scale. I went back into the event set & have posted these to show his cockpit & pilot.














JW you have some beautiful interior shots there, with very even lighting.

How hard can it be to write a 100 word bio about yourself

Very hard Mark! Writing about yourself is one of the most difficult things to do.

At least I've finally sent 15 photos to ISAP.

Thank you Wrei. That layout runs around $400K, on a small lot, zero lot line for all intents and purposes. The home that I posted the dusk shot of is around 1.2M on a nice sized lot. None of those numbers will make any of our West Coast folks blink.

Just tried to see if it was possible to attend Isap but that also fell trough have a family event to attend with my Mother so for this year all overseas trips are scrubbed.
So maybe only one aviation related event this year
Sometimes the plan doesn't come together....

I think I've mentioned this before, but HDR is permeating the architectural market, not in a good way. Photographers are using HDR to compensate for lack of knowledge and or technique. There are a couple of people in Texas who employ it to the point that the images look like Thomas Kinkade renderings. I guess that there are clients who like that look but I can't imagine it going over with my clients. HDR would certainly make my life easier, employed to that degree, because you need almost no skill at all to capture the original shot.

Too bad Jan Arie. We'll look forward to the next time the plan does come through! Give your Mom my best.

Jim...that is spectacular. I love the floor. (If a salesman showed me a brochure with those photos for a $400k home, I would have to go look!) An announcer on "Great Homes" was talking about similar flooring in a very expensive home as "hand carved and hand laid". I could only afford the machine carved floor, but it is hand laid!

Thanks Wrei. I installed machine scraped planks at HQ and I love the floor. More and more builders, even at the high end are going to that ever improving pre-finished product. This home is 1.4M and the flooring is pre-finished.

There is no doubt this is HDR, just screwing around.

But you know what Tim, that's beautiful. The architectural images I'm talking about look cartoonish. Your image is obviously tweaked, but the results are spectacular rather than comedic.

The problem with HDR is that often the people employing it don't truly understand what the theory and intent behind HDR is and then proceed to crank all the sliders to 11 (which is somewhere between eyes bleeding and brain aneurysm) and call it artistic when really it's horrible to the average photographer. The problem then becomes that more people that don't understand what it is that they're doing will look at that, and, thanks to the new standard operating procedure of facebook/flickr/etc of everything being amazing, and negative comments being frowned upon, they will only get comments on how amazing it is.

This shot is a 5 shot HDR.

That's ok, it's the grunge look. I won't have that problem this year. When they show up in September the wings will be full of bondo, painted, and smooth as glass, just like Strega's.

That is really nice. I never have like the cartoon over the top HDR's.

Nice work Brian! Was that today? If so, you had better conditions than the 400OVC/1M that engulfed KTKI most of the day.


Don't let the pics trick you, we almost didn't get out due to low ceiling, Yellow Rose cancelled due to that as well. Today started off almost as bad down there but cleared up for the afternoon. 30+mph winds, just not an easy thing to get prop blur in lol

Those conditions, however, were perfect for focusing on completing my staircase. Should have been done six months ago, but I don't have Glenn around to shame me into finishing projects. Next step, caulk/prime and a couple of coats of Ben Moore's best stuff.


Looking truly awesome. An appropriately sized Texas flag too I might add
