365 Day Thread for 2018

Discussion in 'Classic Manual Cameras' started by Mike Gammill, Jan 1, 2018.

  1. Andrew, love the Delta Queen photo.
    I’ve told the story before, but when I was a kid, Dad and I saw the Delta Queen, well lit, going up the Mississippi one night from a sandbar we had reached by canoe, across the river, to camp. The calliope woke us up.
    That was around ‘69 or ‘70.
    A memory for the rest of my life.
  2. I took that photo sometime in March of 2010. They were the last of the riverboat steamers as opposed to modern diesels.

    In above photo the two were tied up in Algiers near the Bollinger drydock - with their calliopes eerily silent.

  15. 11th, The plane is a modified Yakovlev 3, a successful racer at Reno air races in the USA. It was difficult to keep this Speedy Gonzales in the viewfinder while it was flying, with the lens zoomed - Camera, Digital Canon 960 IS

  16. I know the weekly threads seem to get most of the praise, but I'm impressed with what I've been seeing on the 365 day thread as well.
  17. Love that Yak, kmac! Just to continue the aviation theme, here's one for the 13th. This was taken a couple of years ago at one or our airshows, the camera was a Minolta SRT 101 fitted with the 135mm MC Tele Rokkor - QD f/3.5. and the film was Fuji Superia 200.


  18. I was fascinated by that plane when I was a kid. Built a plastic model of it painted black. Great to see people maintaining such wonderful history.
    I remember it’s designation as “PBY” a night patrol bomber.
    I remember thinking how cool those gunner bubbles were.
  19. Firstly, beautiful shot of the Catalina Rick. I reckon you caught those propellers just right

    Here's a black PBY Moving on. In this shot I wanted to include the people around it, they were just a few of the total 20,000 at the airshow. I paid my $5 to climb the rear ladder and make my way through plane. A half dozen inquisitive children occupied the bubbles already. When I finally reached the section just behind the cockpit, I had room to make a short movie of the interior, revolving around 360 degrees. Entering the cockpit was forbidden
