In anticipation of the fall 2017 breakfast fly-ins beginning in October I offer an image of "Mr. Big Props" from 2016.  I love the ginormous propellers on this airplane.

A quick BTS screenshot from his upcoming debut documentary/tutorial on how to caress those sweet Fine Art images from the analog Hassi...

(or just a cellphone shot of Jeff metering the wrong end of the DC-7 icon at Coolidge this morning,

or

Maybe he's lost the last few of his remaining marbles and he's trying to interview the plane, mistaking his light meter for a microphone while trying to shoot video on the Hassi?)

All kidding aside, I'm looking forward to seeing how his image turns out.  Just like in the good ole film days, no instant, digital gratification, but I'm sure the wait will be worth it.

Well now; I woke up a 04:00 and (on a whim) decided to make a drive to Coolidge and take an image that has been in my head of the full moon setting with a lone airplane on the ramp.  Not only was the full moon obscured by the heavy overcast, the lone airplane (Skyvan) was facing the wrong direction.  Oh well, it was a nice drive and I had a terrific conversation with Dave - whom I hadn't anticipated seeing there before sunrise.  I figured if I was going to drive all that way, I'd take a couple of photos of the venerable DC-7 and (thanks to Dave) got a couple of shots of the full moon making a brief appearance under the wing of the DC-7 and moments before it set.  Got home in time to get working on the "honey-do" list the lovely Mrs. Welker had waiting for me.  As Dave noted, not sure if any of the four photos will be "worth it", but I won't know until I finish the roll.  I'm also hoping my reciprocity failure calculations were correct.  A few more steps before I get to see an image or two.  No chimping with the Hasselblad 501CM  Wink

A few images from last Saturday's gloomy skied pancake fly-in.  The sun did manage to peek out from behind the clouds a couple of times, but not many.

Here is how the image turned out.  I miscalculated my light reading and over exposed the image.  I think I like the "high key" look, but that just might be my vanity trying to dodge the fact that I blew the shot.  I'll blame my poor meter reading to the unexpected overcast, but that is just an excuse.  Oh well, its just a single negative and I'll be back.

It's got that 'Dreamy' feel to it.  How'd that shot with the moon turnout?

COOLIDGE TOWER

For just over an hour back in May, Coolidge was a controlled airfield, with a card-carrying FAA tower controller managing traffic in and out of the airfield.  A big dumpster next to the infield port-a-johns was his tower.  (If only that light had held for when the aircraft showed up - GAH!).
