The local airport is hosting a collection of WW-II era planes this weekend. The word was that they would land between 1:30 and 2:00 yesterday afternoon. I headed over to the airport and parked at the end of the runway waiting for them to land. I clicked a few shots of modern private planes landing and from the results was sure I’d get some great images of the antique planes in flight. Instead, the wind changed direction just before they landed and I was at the wrong end of the field. I made this image of a fighter when it reached the end of the runway to turn around.
This year marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of our little town. We may be little, but we celebrated big time. The highlight was a two-hour parade starting on..wait for it…Milford Street! We celebrated by decorating our home, hosting family for a cookout and enjoying the parade. As an added treat, the floats and vehicles were lined up before the parade in front of our house. My niece got to explore antique tractors and engines and meet some beauty contestant winners.
You might ask: What kind of skylight is this? It is a skylight on a 18th century ship. A friend and I visited the USS Constitution. Build for the US Navy in 1798, it is still a commissioned naval vessel manned by U.S. Navy sailors. It recently underwent a restoration so details, like this skylight are just gleaming.
