It’s Power Never Ceases to Amaze Me!

This movie requires Flash Player 9

The sharing of images brings so many reactions, some good and some, not so good. But the not so good are so blown away and erased by the few good. This one rates as great in my book. If you look back at my postings from Oshkosh back in July, you’ll find post on one gentleman I meet there and the revelation that the event was not about planes, but about people. And in the grand scheme of things, that’s really true of all photography. We take time from our lives to follow our passion, get frustrated with this black box in the hope of concurring it for what? So we can share our good fortunes with others to make them smile. What a grand and noble pursuit it is!

I’ve been very fortunate with the release of my book to hear from a lot more folks from around the planet. Critters and landscapes tend to bring the bright side out in folks. So I’ve heard some very kind words from folks of late (thanks!). But today, I had a note from someone requesting a sample copy of our BT Journal. It’s a short message, but I never thought I would get such a response to my aviation work. This is what Pete had to say.

“thanks for sharing yu vintage airplanes with us. My Dad piloted B17’s and named one after me, little stinky a baby with a load in my diaper. Wonderful plane designed and flown by our greatest generation”

The photograph, it’s power never ceases to amaze me. This photo is for your dad Pete.
