Still Life Right in Front of You!

I bought this old Eastman Kodak camera at a antique store for my office to fill some shelf space. One day, I mentioned to my wife that I needed a new photo for a frame in the office, and I remembered seeing a stock photo in a frame at a furniture store similar to this one I took here. I think it worked pretty good.
I used a Canon Digital Rebel with a Sunpak 555 flash held approx. one foot away with strobo diffuser and a 42" sunbounce silverside. 180th at 6.5 if I remember correctly.

Photographer's Right

I was looking for photography laws on the internet and came across this little bit of information which would be good to have on hand when you are confronted by somebody when you are taking photographs.

ARFF Crash Truck

The Tucson Airport Authority took delivery of a 3000 gallon aircraft rescue fire fighting vehicle. This truck also carries 500 lbs of dry powder chemical. The fire fighting capabilities are great, while driving down the runway at 50 miles an hour it can disperse the foam and dry chemical.

For a truck this size and weight it is quit agile, 0-50 in 31 seconds. Having the opportunity to drive this truck is one of the most awesome feelings.
