One Man's Passion

This is a video from an airshow in France  - 2010 , but the plane is the Spifire , my Dad's photographic passion
He visited the Duxford Airshow in 1996 & I have recently found the negatives from his day out taking photos .
Seems like he had a ball ,as  there are shots of many old planes & some really great ones of the Red Arrows in formation , with the coloured smoke trailing shapes in the sky , but the star of the show for my Dad , was of course the Spitfire
With my flatbed scanner its fairly easy to get some good clear j.pegs to work with & edit , some I will leave as a photograph & some will get the "art" treatment .
I have found two photography sites , one in America & another in the UK , both handle all the sales stuff , but Im really curious to see the comments the pictures receive. The  pure joy of being able to showcase his work is making me very proud &  its lovely that he will receive some kudos after all these years

The End of The Year

So , we all survived the 2012 disaster scenarios & I managed a peaceful Christmas this year  , with no broken bones!!
The blogs dont seem to be very popular any more , Facebook is THE thing to be seen on, so it would seem!
The blogs that do well are those that offer tuition & give freebies , I visit a few favourites myself , That said , I still enjoy posting here!
So what to add for this last entry of 2012? I opened the file marked New Work & here are some of the most recent additions to my garden this Autumn . Some new editing techniques applied , from the afore mentioned sites . I will list my favourite bloggers in another post
