The Three Churches

June 2nd, 2015 · 5 Comments · General

Friend of mine back in Nova Scotia tells  me a cell phone company wants to set up a tower right behind these churches, located in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia.  This is truly one of the most iconic view in all of eastern Canada.  Imagine what a cell phone tower  would do to the beauty of […]

Moon, Eagle and Jet

January 12th, 2015 · 2 Comments · General

Had a nice cooperative moon and eagle this morning.  Afterward, while headed home, an airliner/moon fly by topped off the morning   And when you’re watching the moon, you’d better keep your eys out for photos of opportunity! When teh moon hits your eye like a big Pizza pie!

2014 AIRSHOWS!

December 23rd, 2014 · 5 Comments · General

I’ve been meaning to get some of the better shots I took – both internal and external to an aircraft – from this past 2014 Airshow season (“better” is a relative word.  They are not all bad, some good, some average, some whatever.  Hope you enjoy them, in any event!). Earlier this year I was […]

Potomac Eagles

A few nice shots from this morning down near the Leesylvania State Park near where I live in Woodbridge, VA. Not a bad hour or two. It was Adult Swim time by the river – Mama and Papa, no young eagles around. Papa, I’m pretty certain it was, did not like my presence so he […]

T-28 Trojan

The Navy’s primary trainer aircraft in the 1950s,   My dad had some flights in this type aircraft – telling me of its fairly high altitude capabilities for a prop of its type – up to the mid 30,000 feet range – and how it had speed brakes, again a rare thing for a prop […]

What To Do

October 3rd, 2014 · 11 Comments · General

Well, I just renewed the Instapinch for another year.  Not certain why.  The advance of Facebook and Twitter and other forms of social yakking has really cut into the motivation to keep a blog going.  When I retired from the Navy reserves in 2010 that was the first big hit – no more “insider baseball” […]

Thunderbird Opposing Solo Pass

August 29th, 2014 · 5 Comments · General

From the Atlantic City Air Show a few weeks ago.  I think this shot could not be much better.  Aviation photographers try for a lifetime to nail the timing on this – I managed to suitcase it the first time I ever saw these guys. Pure luck!  Indeed, trhough, I did get exactly what I […]
