1. Glad I waited.

I went to a "Wings & Wheels" show this afternoon at a local field. I saw planes I never thought I'd ever see close up, including an awesome Cessna 195 (aren't they all?). There were 140s and homebuilts alongside Skyhawks and every type of Cub imaginable, including a rare "Carbon Cub". All this for a $5 donation to the Animal Welfare League (I gave $10).

They were taking off two at a time and buzzing the field all along a grass runway lined with cool cars. A blues rock band played throughout the afternoon.

6. Correct

 

He had made a turn, and displayed a nice profile.
The clouds add to the illusion.

7. I have that lens, too.

It's great for this sort of thing. I've got pictures of Dall sheep way up on a hillside, and it looks like I'm right next to them.

13. Sun tour stem shifters. It's been a long time since the last

19. Been watching

 

There are few beauties in the submission thread.
There are few that I'd vote for over mine.
I've got my eye on one, and I'm voting for it.
