Jay, that is wonderful, just wonderful, and not all that surprising, given your hard earned standing in such things.

And in other news, it appears that Jay and I are forming the MA2A sub-group of 'People who have got Gene Soucy onto the cover of a magazine'! Coming soon to an FBO near you...

Grabbing a salad at McAlister's and winding down a 15 hour day. Funny, at a time when I've been thinking about how I might scale this operation back a bit, I seem to be adding huge clients at a record pace. Two of the world's largest commercial property managers/developers were added to my client list today. Sheesh! To be twenty five and know what we know today huh?

And Zim, I know "No is a complete sentence", but man, the marketer in me has a hard time uttering it in these situations. They say if you do something for 30 days it becomes a habit, well try 32 years, plus all the years I was in training for this job!

I suppose I can mitigate some taxes if I charge my day rate, and use the Pilatus to get me to and from the shoot.

Peter, I like the composition on the Hustler.


+1 that is a very intriguing plane for me, and your POV shows how little clearance there was between the landing gear and that tank...which looks just massive from this angle.

Got any more Hustler shots?

Edit - dangit - busted at ToP

Got this while watching my kids swimming around in the surf at Assateague Island, MD yesterday. Didn't hear these guys coming (there were two of them) and so I'm doubly busted with a 98% frozen prop. I swear there is a smidgeon of blur in there



Nice shot of the T-34C. Lot of fun to fly, have just a little over 1200 hours in it (early 80's). That one is out of NAS Oceana, Weapons school. Used as spotter aircraft...still in Training Command colors. Regardless of "frozen" prop....I like it.



thanks very much for the background on the planes. I thought they may have been out of the NASA facility by Chincoteague, but I guess they got a bit more of a ride. They had gone north about an hour prior.

Jay, that is wonderful that you were able to supply the appropriate image. After reading the story behind the request, I choked up a little when I saw the image. I guess I must be getting more sentimental as I get older.

Well done, Jay. It must be most rewarding that you were able to go back into your archives and find just the right image for this request

Here is a link to a guy who is building a Boeing 777-300ER in 1/60th scale out of manila folders. What I have seen on the first page is quite good. There are also videos of working doors, landing gear and thrust reversers, however I have yet to watch them.

Just sent this dawn image off to the CEO of one of my new clients. I think this relationship is in the process of being cemented. I hadn't planned on getting up that early, and they told me no one could meet me on site until 8. Lo and behold that still small photography voice woke me around 4 am and said, "how 'bout we go take a look...?" I learned long ago, no matter how good the pillow feels, ya don't ignore that voice .................... (and I know what you are thinking, but they don't want the handicapped signs retouched

But if they ever do.................

Following in Lady Jo's footsteps, I just acquired a Micro Four Thirds system body and some lenses. What pushed me into the purchase is an upcoming trip where I'm going to be using public transport a lot and don't want to haul the full-frame DSLR's around for weeks at a time on planes, trains and automobiles (and buses, and trams...). And I'm tired of 'enthusiast' P&S cameras that just don't have the responsiveness and feature set you'd want.

So I picked up an Olympus E-P5 kit with the VF-4 electronic viewfinder and 17mm f/1.8 prime (that's 34mm equivalent, for those of us who don't speak MFT). My primary walking-around lens will be the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 X OIS (the crop factor for MFT is 2.0, so it's a fast, 24-70mm equivalent).

It's a pretty nice piece of kit: solidly built and the controls are well laid out and feel good under the hand, but not bulky and heavy like DSLR's are. AF is fast and sure; shutter lag is nonexistent, just like a DSLR; 9 fps continuous burst mode for when you need it; built-in intervalometer and WiFi and some other cool if marginally useful features. The IQ won't make anyone drop their D800 in the trash, but it's plenty good; and the 5-axis image stabilization built into the camera body is nothing short of spectacular (X- and Y-translation, plus roll, pitch and yaw). The articulated LCD on the back of the camera is also a touch screen; the electronic viewfinder is removable when you want to go minimalist, but is by far the best EVF I've ever seen.

Once I get used to the smaller form factor and Olympus' menu system, I think I'm going to like it a lot. Here's a grab shot off the back deck this evening, handheld, with the 12-35 at 12mm.
