Yes, I shot all these exteriors from the top of my trailer. Partly because the builder installed that goofy fence to direct traffic through the sales office and then on to the street full of models. My trailer is worth it's weight in gold for so many reasons, the custom platform I had built on top is just one of them.

No Brian, I didn't want to wear out the impact of super imposing dusk shots on all the screens, so I just left the "Cars" image on this one.

Something most of you will probably never need to know, this afternoon I was moving from a dining room shot to the next set up and was blowing out the candles on the dining room table. They were in hurricane style glass shrouds. One large one in the middle and two smaller ones on each side. I blew out the first little one, then the big middle one, I leaned over the third one and the smoke from the last one made be instantly sneeze. Seems the design of the glass shroud was perfectly shaped to propel the molten wax right back into my face and my right eye. Needless to say, this is hardly any fun at all. I don't think I did any permanent damage, but my right eye is a bit sore. Could have been a lot worse I guess. Hope it's back to 20/20 when I rack out at 5 tomorrow to wrap up the marathon. So, don't sneeze over a molten candle, just in case you find yourself in that situation.

And this is the same pass the following day but even though they had brought in 2 extra Birds they couldn't field a full set for the routine.


Keep in mind those planes were put in to service in 1960, and I don't mean the Tutors, I mean the snowbirds Tutors...if they make it to when they're anticipating (2020) that'd be 60 years in service.

Oh hell no...I think they're pieces of crap. But we can't even get a budget approved to buy a frontline fighter, I don't see them approving replacing the snowbirds jets any time soon. There was a rumor of them going to Hawks a couple years back, but the deal that had been proposed fell through.

I knew they were old & overdue for a modern replacement but I didn't realize they were quite that old. I can't remember exactly when I first saw one fly but it was after we transferred to Ottawa which was in 63. Either way it's time to buy something modern.

I wish. It was 20F this morning, and they are talking about plowable snow on Monday night. March in New England can be a real tease....

81 degrees as I arrive at HQ for a quick back up and to make sure the iMac is back up to snuff. I think it would have been way less expensive to just hand me a new one. I like this one, and I wasn't looking forward to dealing with Adobe serial numbers and plug ins for a week, so I'm kind of glad they just replaced everything on mine.

In order to complete everything on my plate by this evening, today needed to begin at 5:30. I double, actually triple checked that we were on for an unlock in Ft. Worth at 6:45..........the answer was always an emphatic yes. I'll have to check what time zone Ft. Worth is in these days, because no one showed until 9, ugh! I often wonder what would happen if I didn't constantly worry about all these details and figure out a way to make it all work. Just another chapter in the book, "Just because you are doing what you love, doesn't mean it's not a lot of work!" Chapter 13!
