    I had a slow weekend shooting, however I did bang away 200 images yesterday of a vintage aircraft roll-out but they are not very interesting. Been slow with a cold so I layed low today. I decided to shift gears for a second and post a few images from my father and grandfather.

    This is the R-100 at St. Hubert, Quebec in 1929. The little boy is my father and the girl is my aunt.

    This is a photo my father took of Jayne Mansfield when she was in Toronto to promote one of her films in or around 1963.

    This photo is of a German WWII Komet Rocket aircraft at St. Jean, Quebec in the 50s. It is now restored at the USAF Museum in Dayton.

    A classic 1950s airline travel shot taken at Toronto. The aircraft is a Lockheed Constellation.

    I hope you like. I will see if I can get more of my father's and grandfather's scenery shots scanned over the winter and post them from time to time. You can see where I got my photo and aviation bug from.

    Cheers,

    Eric

    I was thinking the same, Canon Fan: here's one where photography very, very clearly is a tradition in the family. Must be running in their genes!

    The first one is really impressive!
    So clear, so sharp - from so long ago. Amazing!

    And I like the "Classic 1950's airline travel shot" very, very much, too.

    Actually, I like them all!!!!

    The funny part is my father and grandfather were only in it as a hobby. They never made any money off of their photography but have left some amazing images. I will post more as I get the chance.
