Neat, but do you know why is that capsule in the background wearing what appears to be an oversized shower cap?

Are you planning on stopping by the National Museum of the USAF before you leave the US?

I went to Washington DC last week.

I had high expectations going to see the National Air and Space Museum. I was gob smacked by what I saw.

It was overwhelming what is there right before your eyes.

IIRC, that's the Apollo 11 command module, and it's completely encased in plexiglas.

Thanks Steve, the curiosity factor kicked in really hard on that one.

Well i did have a good conversation with my camera this morning after the rain incident yesterday.
Threw it down the mountain and picked it up again walked up and then it decided to start working again.


The Tornado pass was by special request of the crew who had some photo friends up on the mountain with us

This turned out a little rough. Needed a couple more stops on the dark end to hold back the sky hole a little more, but with some work, it might polish out some...

J-A,
very nice, especially the Tornado. If I may - I think the second crop works better for me with your watermark configuration, as I find the band a bit distracting.

Jay,
that last one, is, well, umm, spectacular.

Well today was spent at HQ pouring over video blogs and technical specs. I dusted off my XHA1 and bought a couple of Sony Pro Mini DV tapes. Until I can begin to make sense out of some of this, I'm going to play with the XH a little. Came very close to pulling the trigger on a C100, but read a little more and found myself moving up to the C300, then the C500, at which point I grew a little weak in the knees and dove back into my research.

I had a couple of discussions with my people at Really Right Stuff and, based upon a little inside info, I did order my RRS Fluid Head and the appropriate adapters. Seems that their new fluid head meets and in some cases, exceeds the specs and performance of heads costing many times the RRS price. They estimated my delivery at about ten weeks, if I jumped in line today, it seems that the backlog is increasing daily. They do make outstanding stuff, just works and feels good in one's hands. I think I'll be putting my Gitzo in reserve and picking up their carbon fiber pod shortly.

Nice shooting Jan Arie! Sometimes you just have to remind this gear who is boss! I've been known to utter "...in about five seconds you are going to become the insurance company's problem!" Things generally sort themselves out.......

Glenn's T-37 flew today after three years of sitting and months of tweaking.
