Various photos from the WW Gathering in Seattle, featuring the air show put on in Everrett, Wa. at the Flying Heritage museum.

Ron (WWChunk) and his family was our gracious host for this occasion, spoiling us with wonderfully tasty smoked pork and more hospitality than we could have hoped for. Thank you, sir, for everything!

I enjoyed all of these shots Sandy, and the EXIF data is very cool to see. I had a great weekend guys, and I can’t wait to see y’all again!

In all fairness, the shots you see have all been walked through Adobe LightRoom, and few emerged without significant alteration in lighting, color and size. That is why I shoot in RAW format though, and export into .jpg format for posting. I took over 1,000 photos through the course of the airshow, most of which were blurry messes with peoples heads in the way. Those fewer decent shots (that were in focus, or mostly so) were often over-exposed or under-exposed. LightRoom to the rescue, and my originals are now much closer to how I intended them. 

To be honest, I am ever more in awe of photographers from before DSLR's ... To not know how your photos would turn out until they had been printed? #Mind-Blown. 

I remember the first roll of film I shot with my first SLR camera (I still have it, a Minolta XG-1 from 1983) : Out of 24 frames, I had two the print shack actually printed. All the rest weren't worth printing. The gal in the little photo-printing booth said "Those Kodak Instamatics take good pictures all the time, ya know." I was crushed, some of those pics were memories I wanted to share! Instead I had to actually read the manual, and discovered that focus isn't the only thing to worry about. All these years later, with far superior tech, I still suck at snapping a photo the way I want the subject captured.  But the tech is really, really good... :)

Edit: LOL, case in point above... The image of Meghan at the gum wall, with her tongue out. The gum is in focus, not her face... I love the photo, but it's technically a grade F.

Good grief that's a lot of gum, all the great photos of everyone and the dah planes, and I can't get the wall of gum out of my head, LOL... thanks!

I think I want a plane skin like that, a probation skin, goober wears the gummy skin... and that just sounds wrong. 

You guys looked like you had a great time. ~S~
