While on vacation last month I took the train up Mount Pilatus in Switzerland. As we exited the top station we saw an Aérospatiale SA 315B Lama doing sling loads, this at an altitude of about 6,700 feet. I had trouble standing still while holding the camera so high, but I thought it was interesting to see the effect on the rotor blur as I rolled down the shutter speed.

The bombers were great, but the sound of the Merlin was what drew me out of HQ........

That was too bad Jay. As our plan unfolds we'll be able to create our own version at will, so don't lose any sleep over it.

I'm the proud owner of a Hasselblad 500CM Chrome Late with Waist Level, Acute-Matte w/Grid & Split, Rapid Wind Crank, etc. Two A12 Chrome Backs with Mask, Lindahll Dark Slide Holders. One Planar CF 2.8/80 mm lens. All are in 'Excellent Plus' condition. All were sent to Hassleblad Certified Service Center for thorough CLA and return to factory specs. Just something I always to with used gear.

I've got a several roles of TMax 100 and Tri-X 400 in the fridge and ready for testing.

Any suggestions for additional lenses (something wide and something long)'and accessories would be sincerely appreciated (Jim?).

Looks like I'll be shooting film again soon. I must admit to being excited to explore this new facet of my photography. Definitely not an outfit for dynamite aviation shooting, but it works wonders on a tripod. Just the type of slow paced and thoughtful photography and old may like myself will enjoy. I love the 6x6

Country: Australia

Australia just celebrated an International Fleet Review which was held to commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy's Fleet into Sydney. On 4 October 1913.

17 Countries sent modern warships. There were a dozen or so tall ships.

I drove down early Saturday morning in hope of seeing a whole pack of tallships at anchor but Sydney Harbour is very deceptive. It can indeed hold "A thousand ship o' the line"; easily.

Saturday night there was a spectacular light show and fireworks detailing the history of the Australian Navy. Projections were shown on the Opera House and a couple of the ships that participated and was very well done.

In the afternoon I brought the family with me and stood shoulder to shoulder with 15000 other people on Mrs Macquarie's chair - a natural tongue of parkland that juts out into the harbour opposite of Garden Island Naval base.

This pic sums up the action.
