Placerville Airport

Yesterday my Dad and I went up to the airport for the EAA's pancake breakfast. The weather was PERFECT, at 7:00 it was 60 degrees, no wind, and not a cloud in the sky. The flight school had all but 1 plane in the air and everybody was out doing something with their airplanes. I had a lot of bad pictures because I am trying to figure out how to get that nice prop blur without messing up the rest of the photo. I could have had some good ones, but they were either blown out or blurry. Oh well, I will eventually get it right, but for now it just means I have to go the airport more!

Thanks, my goal for this summer is to improve my photography, I certainly learned a lot just from this quick early morning visit.

Cool blog. Made me recall an old Army buddy, last name of Battersby, (Battersbee?). Anyway he was from Placerville and he worked on car restoration and customization before joining the Army. He was restoring a Pontiac Trans Am at the time I knew him, we filled and sanded and primed it. Really great guy to get along with. Seems like a pretty cool place to live.
