The good part of my day came when I purchased my new kit, including a Gitzo basalt tripod (a bit $$$, but light as a feather) and a new remote for my 300D.

The bad part came when I was awakened by a freshly painted QA 738 taking off from RNT, and missed shooting it. Also saw the new 777 sitting outside the paint hanger at BFI, but couldn't get a good shot of it from anywhere around the field. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

You live next to Renton and actually sleep? What's wrong with you? Let this be a lesson  Smile

I try to keep the zzzzz's to a minimum, cause the minute I sleep a little late in the morning, something great takes off. I have learned my lesson.
I have thought about sleeping on my balcony with camera and gear set up, so I could just step out of bed and shoot, but it tends to rain alot here in western Washington, so that option is out.

Well, the Qantas 738 will be flying a couple of more times out of BFI, prior to delivery.

The 772LR is flying at least once every day, yesterday it went up twice.

You have a view of Renton from your place? Wow.

Here's what bird photographers do, say next to a feeder in their backyard. Set up the camera on a tripod with either an infrared sensor, or maybe autofocus custom function in the camera, so when something moves into view at a certain distance it snaps a photo without anyone there to push a button. Catch some zzzzz's and some BBBBBB's.
