March 2018 Photography Contest

The theme of this month's photo contest is near and dear to my heart. Unusual, funky or corny locations. Only rule is at least part of an Airstream must be included. For example this one from the VLA (Very Large Array) in New Mexico, my stomping ground, that was also featured with my chidhood heart throb Jodie Foster in "Contact". Thank you Johnco (not to be cornfused with John Hinkley) for the honor of being this month's judge, and good luck to all my brothers and sisters in aluminum.

Yup I remember the song, but I don't remember any candy corn in it.

No debate on corniness here! I did at least 15 minutes of research and found this cover which rates at the top of the corny scale:

Ooooh, I *love* this theme. I'm going for the unusual here, rather than the corny. Or, maybe just a touch of corny.


This is NASA's most famous KC-135 positioned with its wheel resting on our Interstate's windshield. (Actually, for display purposes, the decommissioned aircraft is mounted in a take-off position, and I simply arranged the frame to make it look like the front gear was resting on the windshield.)

Known informally as the "vomit comet", this is the aircraft that was used not only for astronaut training, but also in the movie Apollo 13 for the scenes that required genuine weightlessness (story here). It flew 58,000 parabolas before being retired.

Many people know about the tourist facility called Space Center Houston, but fewer people realize that this gem is on display a few miles up the road at Ellington Airport (which was formerly an Air Force base).

Like fellow Houstonian Howard Hughes when he was filming his movie "Hell's Angels", I had to wait months for just the right puffy clouds to appear so that I could get this dramatic pic. And then I had to go early so that there wouldn't be other visitors blocking this view.

Happy Easter and April Fools Day.

And the Winner is D44's shot of the Corn Palace.

D, It now becomes your responsibility to choose the theme of the April Photo Contest and pick the winner.

The rules are pretty much up to you but submissions need to be original photographs.

Congratulations

Aprils Fools indeed!

Thank you for the honor of honor of being selected to administer the April 2018 Photography Contest.

April, 2018's contest is centered around "Bucket List" photos - a location, trip, event or happening that you were able to cross off your "bucket list" with your Airstream. The photo must include your current, or past, Airstream and a short summary of why this is your "bucket list" photo.

Here is the link to the April 2018 Photography Contes - "Bucket List"

Good luck to all contestants!

Walt
