The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

Sanford, Maine | July 25, 2012

Flew a trip earlier today to Sanford, Maine. This is the first time I’ve been to this airport and we had incredible weather as you can see. Right after dropping off our passengers this wonderfully cared for Waco arrived.  I wasn’t sure how long he was going to be on the ground so I hurried over with my camera to grab a couple shots.

The pilot, Dave Trucksess of Atlas Aero, had no problem me being another pilot taking a few shots of his craft.  We  officially met after he returned sending his tour passengers on their way.  It didn’t take us long to get acquainted and learned quickly we knew some of the same folks in the aviation business.

After getting a few shots of his bird, I invited Dave over to our jet for a look.  I grabbed a quick shot of him in our cockpit before we had to leave.

So if you’re ever up in Maine near Portsmouth and Sanford, give Dave Trucksess a call if you want a tour in a Waco along the southern Maine coastline!

    I love Wacos. Unfortunately, I was in Brownsville, TX last year when the nicest Waco I’ve ever seen (Kyle, and formerly Jimmy, Franklin’s UPF-7 “Mystery Ship”) lose power and go down in a mesquite field. Now those hold a special place in my heart right next to the Stearman (the first open-cockpit plane, and the first biplane, I ever rode in). Great photos as usual.
