February 20, 2007-Revised Schedules

Hello faithful reader.

Well this Saturday was supposed to be WhiStle radio's,, Stars of Stouffville III, but due to some problems has been postponed for a bit. I was to attend, also for th e third year, as photographer of the event.
I even went so far as to add another low light lens to the Lowepro, a Pentax DA 50 F2.8 Macro. But it will have to wait i suppose. Good thing, as i need to send in my K10D to address aome back focus issues. I have been assured it will be a maximum of 2 weeks turn around, so the timing should be good.

Its a pretty good event. Usually 6-7 local artists, doing sort of an Unplugged type of show. I'm always impressed with the talent we have in the area.

Today photo is a shot from year I, Chris Huddy and Bob Watson, converted to B&W, one of my first attempts.

Tanks for listening

Feb 6, 2008-Windmills on wheels

Hello faithful reader.

You know, this trucking business sure is starting to look like the survey business i was in for 34 years.
A lot of hurry up and wait. Rush out to the site, and find you don't have half of the paper work and or information you need
but start out anyway. Took four loads of windmill bases to Fargo ND last week, but due to the loss of at least 10 hours, waiting for permits and the drivers to tie down the loads properly, we only made it to Hurley Wis., Friday afternoon. Since they could not travel Wis. on the weekend, we were sent home and some US escort drivers took over on Monday.
I should mention, none of this was driver fault, and all office fault, which again, reminds me of my survey days.

Here is a picture of one of the three bases used to make a tower. Gives you a sense of the size of these things

Thanks for listening.
