    I’m Still Here!

    I just checked and the last time I posted on the blog was December 2021! I also counted 12 posts for 2021 and so far none for 2022 and it’s half gone already. That’s not because I haven’t been taking photos, but because I’ve not taken very many and there’s not a whole lot of…

  • Much remastering

    Much remastering

    As with previous posts, I have remastered yet more photos — nearly 100 on the aviation theme. I think it was a sequence of non-aviation photos that got me looking at my 2018 shots. These are ripe for reprocessing as I only discovered DxO PhotoLab in October 2019. There are several blocks I have done,…

  • Classic Fighters 2011 — remastered

    Classic Fighters 2011 — remastered

    I thought I’d done the remastering of all of my air show albums on Flickr but was searching for photos of a specific aircraft type recently and stumbled across the fact I had so far not done this one.

  • Auckland 2009

    Auckland 2009

    First I remastered my Whenuapai Open Day photo album, then just recently added some photos taken at MoTaT on the same trip. I also took a bunch of other photos on that trip, at both Auckland International Airport (Mangere), and at Ardmore airfield. These had been published at the time but have now been remastered.…

  • MoTaT 2009

    MoTaT 2009

    Please note that title does not include the word “remastered” despite the year. I will admit I was actually looking for photos I could remaster when I stumbled across a bunch I took at the Museum of Transport and Technology (MoTaT) in Auckland, while I was up there for the Whenuapai Open Day. I was…

  • Paya Lebar, Changi, and Sydney remastered

    Paya Lebar, Changi, and Sydney remastered

    I can’t help myself. I recently realised that while I had remastered my non-aviation shots from our 2019 trip to Singapore, I still had those from the RSAF Museum at Paya Lebar, and from our final day when we spent half a day at Changi Airport before flying out in the evening. When I’d done…

  • Royal International Air Tattoo, 1999

    Royal International Air Tattoo, 1999

    The penultimate set of photos from my 1999 trip to the UK is here. While based in Brighton for work, I would spend weekends with my sister and brother-in-law in west London. When I rang my sister on Thursday evening to confirm I would be up on Friday night, she asked would I like to…

  • Winter Wellington

    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 was taking some encouraged time off work and decided to head out to see what…

  • Concorde at Heathrow

    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 to watch Concorde take off. Here’s G-BOAB (as best I can tell) departing RWY27R with…

    Ch-ch-ch-changes…

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

  • Imperial War Museum Duxford, 1999

    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 to the UK in 1999 and 2001. On the 1999 trip I made visits to…

  • Catchup again

    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 New Zealand made heavy use of the types as domestic flying rebounded post lockdown. Here,…
