Flying Legends 2015

Friday, July 17th, 2015

I have just returned from Duxford’s Flying Legends airshow and it was such a splendid experience that I find it difficult to put to words. For a week-end, I spent time in the 1940s, listening to Glen Miller tunes sung by the delightful Manhattan Dolls, photographing Spitfires, Warhawks and Mustangs, visiting Sally B., the last flying B17 in Europe and then hear her roar above my head, and even taking a ride in a 1943 DH.89 Dragon Rapide.

To make it short, I had a flipping grand old time.

Here’s a small sample of pictures taken at the airshow. More to come as they are ready, enjoy!

Cheerioh!

Saptapadi

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Here’s for something novel: After a year of delaying, procrastinating and whatnot, I’m finally publishing my India travel blog with a twist: one day at a time, one year later to the day. I’m funny like that. Head over to Saptapadi to follow our February 2014 Indian adventures.

Enjoy, and of course feel free to comment if you feel like it šŸ™‚

Romanian wedding!

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Well the D90 proved more resilient than the guy predicted as it’s currently going through a Romanian wedding and performing admirably (admittedly with some nudging here and there, but nothing big…)
I took the opportunity to do this with a Vivitar 283, coupled to a Wein hot-shoe adapter. So far, with all the caveats of a trial run, the results are very satisfactory.

It helps that I’m not “on duty” here which gives me the liberty to run these little tests live without fear. W00t.
