Winter Wellington

It felt like such a long time since I last posted that I was sure I had failed to blog about plenty of visits to Wellington Airport, but on investigation there is only my most recent visit this last week. I…

Concorde at Heathrow

As part of scanning my films from 1999 there are a handful of photos that fall between Imperial War Museum Duxford, 1999 and my upcoming reprocessing of RIAT ’99 that were taken when my brother-in-law offered to take me out to Heathrow…

Ch-ch-ch-changes…

Just a quick post about a couple of changes around here.

Imperial War Museum Duxford, 1999

Having recently, finally, mastered multi-frame scanning for 35mm negatives and slides, I set about scanning some of my films from the 1986-2005 period that I was an SLR user. I’ve concentrated on special trips for starters, including two I did…

Catchup again

Although I have posted twice for photo album remasters in the last 9 months, I’ve not posted once about new photos, so it’s time for a quick catchup. I’ve seen a lot more of the Airbus A320neo/A321neo fleet, as Air…

Ohakea 2008 — Remastered

I’ve done it again. This was an “Open Day” at RNZAF Ohakea in 2008. This one took me a long while to get done, but the holiday break (despite some challenges) helped me break the back of the processing and…

Whenuapai Open Day 2009 — Remastered!

I’ve done it again. I’d been meaning to get to this album long before now so at least I had them all corralled in my asset manager, including 25 never before published photos! These photos are over eleven and a…

Welly winter wings

Aside from my extensive remastering work this year (over 500 photos remastered up to this point!) I have only made a handful of visits to Wellington International Airport since the last post on the subject, and all of those within…

Wings Over Wairarapa 2009 remastered

Once again, as on previous occasions, I have revisited one of my air show galleries — Wings Over Wairarapa 2009 — and reprocessed all the photos using DxO PhotoLab 3. PhotoLab is not the perfect photo processing tool, but it…

Wings Over Wairarapa 2013 Remastered

Following on from prior album remasterings, I have turned my attention to my Wings Over Wairarapa 2013 album. I had recently added an extra six photos and these were to my modern standards, which made them stick out in the album.…

Omaka 2017 Remastered

As per my prior remastering of my Wings Over Wairarapa 2015 photos, I’ve done the same thing for those from Omaka’s Classic Fighters 2017 show. Many shots are more closely cropped for a better view of the aircraft and hopefully…

Wairarapa Remastered

Greetings, followers. Those of you who follow my Flickr feed directly may already have noticed some new shots from way back in 2015. What happened is I got some new software which I am now using to process my photos.…

End of break visit

I’ve been enjoying a three week break from work over Christmas and New Year, but only managed to get in a trip to the airport with camera and sun on Friday. My chief goal was to catch the Singapore Airlines Airbus…

Boeing, Boeing, gone

I didn’t realise it at the time, but the pictures I published mid-October of the Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200ER would be my last of the type at Wellington. Only 9 more flights followed that one before the type was retired…

Spring sunshine

It’s been a while since I visited Wellington Airport with the sole purpose of taking photographs, but today was such a day.

Rotorua and back

This is a small update to draw your attention to a handful of new pictures I have just posted. They result from a long weekend away in Rotorua. There are so few photos, I’ll include them all here.

Changi

I’ve finally published the last of 174 photos I took in Singapore in April. The last batch are 38 taken at Changi Airport on our last day.

Published

Paya Lebar

A recent two week holiday included a week in Singapore. I took the opportunity on one of the last days there to pay a visit to The Air Force Museum at Paya Lebar Air Base, one of many homes of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).
