The significance of this portrait is difficult to fully convey unless the viewer knew these two men, Trammell Crow Sr. and his son Harlan. Mr. Crow was gifted in many ways, architecture, art, most certainly business. Harlan had some big shoes to fill. His personality is much different than his father's, Mr. Crow shined in the limelight, very graciously I might add, and Harlan would just as soon leave that attention for those who appreciate it. Harlan is every bit as gifted as his father, more in some ways, and he is one of the humblest, kindest gentleman you could ever hope to meet. What a privilege it has been to have been allowed into their circle of confidence over the decades.

If I have a regret, as far as my photographic career goes, it is that I didn't take a minute to be photographed with so many of my clients/friends over the years. I was always busy capturing something, didn't want to miss a shot. Occasionally one of them would say, "get over here Jim, I want a picture with you.." , so I have a few, Lady Thatcher, John Denver, Ross Perot Sr., and Jr., President Reagan, Willie, Jimmy Buffett, Clarence Thomas, and here is one with my good friend Harlan........

I remember when you did that Jim. When was it, 2013 or so?

I didn't know this:

Yesterday was quite a day. I set out to capture four WWII Veterans and honestly, I'm not sure my images will be in focus because my eyes were welling up most of the time. The first gentleman is an Iwo Jima survivor, USMC, he sang "God Bless America" for me......., The next subject was a B17 navigator with 25+ missions, all over Germany, he is 104. Thinking that those two were going to be difficult to top, my third Vet was in the second wave at Normandy, his two best friends died on his right and his left and he was wounded, I held his Purple Heart. Last, but not least, this 98 year old Navy man hugged me and regaled on his time in the Pacific Theatre. I hated leaving each of them and they all asked me if I would come back soon for a visit. BTW, that last subject was the youngster of the group, and I met up with him as he returned from a day at Carswell JRB with the Blue Angels, when I grow up I want to be like him.........

When AA gives me the thumbs up I’ll post my veteran portraits. As I mentioned, they aren’t what I envisioned when I embarked on the project, but they are good and they show the men and their character. I was prepared to go all “Glyn Dewis” on these portraits, but it just wasn’t possible. I just had to adapt to each scenario and do the best that the situation would allow. One thing that didn’t change was my lens choice, 85/1.2 all the way.

Thanks, Dan! The wonders of modern optics; it makes up for the lack of skill engendered by 5 years of not attending any air shows to speak of . Doesn't hurt that the Z9 looks at the thing and says "oh, yeah, an aircraft; let me focus on the cockpit for you." Amazing stuff.

Oh, and let's not forget the 20 frames per second shooting rate. 8,500 images out of one air show...

Pretty soon it will get to the point where you just wave the camera in a direction of the air show and get what you want

But yeah, the Z9 is trained on all sorts of objects and the most likely favored focus point necessary. Pretty amazing, actually.

Oh and on a 27" calibrated monitor it looks even better! Laptop screens just do not do the images justice.

I originally bought a Z6 to see if I'd like mirrorless but found it wanting. Frame rate wasn't all that high and you couldn't really track fast moving objects while shooting; it was like watching a movie only seeing every 20 frames or so, interspersed with black frames. Horrible. So I didn't convert.

Then when the Z9 came out, I bought one and gave it a try. Instant love (although I still have my two D850's and a D5). The screen never goes black and you can track moving objects while shooting. The only reason you can tell you're not shooting a DSLR is that you can see the prop's turning in the viewfinder (refresh rate) but that doesn't interfere with the tracking.

And the 800PF is small and light; a vast improvement over my old 500 f4 with TC. Add the second Z9 and the 180-600 and maybe the 24-120 for shots on the ramp and it's perfect.
