I spent a wonderful day at the Port Townsend Aero Museum (www.ptaeromuseum.com) yesterday. And the planes "on the ramp" were pretty darn nice too. Put that together with this lovely PNW setting, wow, most picturesque airport I have ever seen. I'd like to climb in that beauty and just go!
I had a very interesting dream while on my last trip to Mexico. I ended up creating a series of images around this dream. The story was published here on my friend Steve Huff's site. Check it out! Let me know what you think of them?
I got me a new camera! I have been wanting something fairly small and light, for trips that aren't true photo missions. It's not worth hauling my big kit, and not appropriate for my Leica kit. This sony seems perfect, with its fixed 24-200mm F/2.8 lens.
This picture is an example of something I could not have taken with any of my existing cameras. From 33,000 feet out of an airliner window. Looking practically straight down. My Canon is just too big to be able to maneuver in that situation.
The smaller of the two Canon zooms I have been using lately is heavier and larger than this whole camera!
Canon 1D Mark III, 70-200mm F/4, f/7.1, 1/250, iso 100
Back when I lived in California I would usually attend a couple of airshows per year. Lots of fun for us photographers. It's interesting that you can achieve this "wingtip to wingtip" perspective from the ground.
