After 4 weeks of going out and trying to get decent/usable parachute photos, I managed to get this project finally done. I didn't realize how hard it is to get good pictures of a fast moving parachute! I must of taken about 300 photos! There's tons left over that are usable Very Happy

AIRSTANDING clivvers, your parachute photography skills are just fantastic and the the way you put together a comic strip is fantastic as well mate Wink.

I really really enjoyed reading and looking at the photos Very Happy.

Yes Bri, they come from the web (G-ogle satalite view) I drew in the clouds with my 'light pen'. I was going to hand draw my own maps or get them from Flight Simulator, but I thought these images would be much better. The field in the map is actually where he took off, and where I did the photo shoot!

Here's one of my 4 program tools I use for my photo/design work. There's tons more on the pasting-board just off screen, I've shrunk the screen down to 40% to show some of my designs. I design and alter each speech bubble for each photo comic. The program can do tons of stuff that I've not used yet, it can also handle pro designs!..

That looks complicated, and my job (when I'm not having bones removed from my spine) is processing designs for imaging printed circuit boards! (among many other things). I'm guessing that picture shows some of the 'organised chaos' I've heard about!

That sounds like a very intresting Job you've got there, Pete!

My art pasting board above is tidy, compared to my other 15 design file/paste boards lol!

Blimming 'Photo-ucket' has done a nasty on me, so all my projects are now on hold, probably for good! Sad

I've just realized that the green pilot suit my MAM is wearing in 'Parachute Test Day 1 & 2 is now classed as vintage, it dates from 1993/94 according to the MAM figure/equipment poster. Early MAM IS now classed as VINTAGE! and that's official! Wink For viewers who are not aware:  MAM=Modern Action Man (1993-2006)

Will the chunky 12" MAM toy ever get released again in a new guise?  Anyone for interactive MAM drones? , drones that carry an Action Man, imagine the outdoor fun!
You've read it here first!  Wink

Yes please for a new Action Man toy for father and son, Hasbro! bounce
