Project 313 – Post No. 080

Oh, boy . . . I’m in a time bind, again. After all, time flies like an arrow and . . . no! . . . I’m not doing the fruit flies like bananas joke again!

Anyway, you know what that means, me being time-bound . . . short post. Possibly, a half-assed short post just to get something out. 

The thing with these types of projects is that you think you have a handle on them but then . . . blaam! . . . one is due and you’re caught munching on snacks trying to get all Jabba-like as you watch inane YouTube or Vimeo videos. 

Well, OK, what I’m actually doing is processing a crapload of photos . . . I finished processing the first batch of photos from the Naval Aviation Museum and I’m starting on the second (I visited on two different days). So far, I have 245 photos ready to post and I’ll probably end up with at least 100 to 137 more. Don’t worry . . . it’ll be multiple posts like THESE

The first day I went to the museum, I shot everything hand-held with an ISO 1600 (occasionally pushing it to ISO 3200) because most museums frown on people using tripods. It turns out they didn’t care . . . so I came back a few days later and shot with the camera on a tripod and the ISO at either ISO100 or ISO 200, depending on the display lighting. 

Bottom line, I have some 375 photos from the first day and another 325 or so from the second day. 

I’ve done all my processing using the updated Nik tools by DxO; so far — forgiving a few very minor bugs — I’m happy with the results and can’t wait to share them. Well . . . I’ll have to wait because I ain’t got no other option, but you know what I mean; it’s one of them colloquialism things we say without stopping to think about what they literally mean. 

And now, the photo:

Project 313 080

Needless to say, I like the B&W version of this previously-presented photo or I wouldn’t show it here.

On a different note, there is a difference between the way men and women handle the little pleasures in life . . . here, I’ll let Willie illustrate what I mean . . . 

While that’s a joke, there have been many times I’ve been similarlt temped by people who carelessly block supermarket aisles. I’m even more tempted here because all the stores operate in what I call maximized shelf space mode; narrow aisles just barely wide for two carts to carefully pass each other . . . unless one of them is a jerk (or jerkette) who cares not for others. 

. . . one of these days . . . RAM SPEED!

I struggled in naming this doodle . . . until the inside pattern reminded me of them annoying stars Ninjas are always throwing around. Of course, the outer perimeter is what makes it an . . . Amoeba Ninja.

Amoeba Ninja

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

  1. I think you are doing a great job keeping up with your Project 313! I admire that!

    I’ve only been to two aviation museums in my lifetime and I enjoyed both of them. A lot.

    PHOTO: I like this GTO photo. It has a very industrial and rock-like feel to it for me.
    CARTOON: Oh my! :-D There is a certain warehouse store I don’t like to shop at because people are always jamming the aisles munching on free samples, or discussing various products. and I just want to get what I need and get the heck out of there. I don’t enjoy shopping at all.
    DOODLE: Ah! Amoeba Ninja. I can see both in it!

    HUGS!!! :-)

      Thank you, Carolyn.

      That would be Costco (or Sams, maybe). What I don’t like is when 3 or 4 people with carts and family in tow are all loitering around a free sample cart waiting for the person to reload the tray . . . even if she says it’ll be a few minutes, they sit there blocking traffic.

      Actually, I don’t like a lot of stuff associated with those stores but to be fair it has to do less with the store and more with people . . . they really should bring back public flogging . . .

      We’ve been to a number of aviation museums and (surprisingly) the one I was least impressed with was the Air Force museum in Dayton . . . mostly because the lighting was very poor. The best, as far as content and displays, was the Air Zoo:

  2. If that’s the Aviation Museum at Hickam Field, I took a few there ten year ago. Not up to your standard but a goodly reminder . Was actually going through the pics I took in 08 yesterday; and Hawai’i featured strongly. Was going to do a post, 10 years on, sort of thing..

      Not been to that museum. I’m referring to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida.

      As for your ten years on post, sure, go ahead and promulgate the idea that years should be divided into blocks of fives and tens.

      Personally, I try and fight that sort of thinking whenever I can. I propose, instead, we only mark prime numbers anniversaries and retrospectives.
