Congratulations Frank Schaefer

Thu Oct 23, 2003 6:20 pm

I just thought it worthy to mention that resident airliners.net photographer Frank Schaefer recently passed over into the 3,000,000+ hits "club"! This is both testament to his dedication and loyalty to this website and also to his skill as a photographer.

Frank doesn't shoot digital, he shoots K64 and every shot in his 9000+ here has been scanned and edited which as we all know takes an enormous amount of time to do.

I'd just like to congratulate him on achieving 3 million plus hits and wish him well in achieving the next 3 mill.....

Here is his first and latest - how the times have changed!

Great pics! Congrats, Frank!! Frank Schaffer is one of those famous names, which has been popping up on a regular basis, since I'm interested in aviation photography.

Let's assist him to get into the 4'000'000 hits club, then. ....Click....Click....

Yep, definitely: size of aircraft increased, number of engines decreased...  Wink/being sarcastic

Thanks guys ...

Just done some calculations on this ....

Since I started uploading in July 1999 to today 9572 of my shots have been added to the database ...

Average time needed for scanning / photoshop / uploading is about 6 minutes ... Lets calculate that !

9572 x 5 = 57432 Minutes = 952.20 hours = 39.88 days ....

Plus approximately 500 shots that I have re-scanned and re-uploaded sofar ...

OK - I need to get a life !!!!!

Anyway - thanks to all of you guys out there that keep looking at my pics and your support - there is more to come ... 10000 pictures online is the next goal !

Have a great weekend everyone !

Cheers,

Frank

Sydney/Australia

He's been scanning for 40 Days & 40 Nights - does that make him Arabian?  Big grin

Just kidding - well done. A fantastic effort. Something for young people like me to aspire to.

Cheers.

LoL - Frank, speaking of the Wallabies, how do you think they will fare? My money is on the Poms at the moment (Darn Pommies!). But then again, I prefer cricket to rugby, and in that department - the Aussies have kicked butt all over the globe... Especially the Poms!!!  Nuts

Cheers!

Hi Frank,

Congratulations of passing the 3 million mark.
Keep up the excellent work.

I can only say I wish I saw you out there more often. Glad I had the chance to meet you those couple of weeks back. Would have liked to have a slide show on your wall there and then (upon seeing you amazing collection - I could have been fixated on the shots for several hours - maybe another time)

Regards,

Glenn Stewart

Soulman - hopefully the Wallabies will rise up to the occasion .... as long as we keep beating the poms in soccer I'm happy anyway .....

Glenn - yes - was good to meet you, too ... I did quite a few sessions at the airport this winter - unfortunately you seem to stay away from my favorite and only morning spot (The corner) and i don't like shooting from The Mound at all ! This fence is just annoying ... and unless its a perfect sunny day i won't even make it to the airport (yes- i am spoiled) ... so with summer coming up shooting will be limited again to very early morning or late pm ... surely i will catch you one afternoon on the new observation deck ...

For the slides - there are about 30.000 - 35.000 at my place ... would take u some time to see them all ... haven't seen them properly myself for a long time ...

Cheers,

Frank

He he - with almost 10,000 images here on A.net, I'd say your slideshow would probably last a while longer than 'several hours'.  Big grin

Lets see...

9572 slides. Each slide will take approximately 15 seconds. (click, image displayed, comment, gaze in amazment, click)

9572*15 = 143580 seconds = 2393 minutes = 39.8 hours. (Better take your sleeping bag Glenn!)  Big thumbs up

And that's just the one's that he has uploaded! I'd hate to think how many more he has stored away! Could be a long week! :P

Cheers.

Craig,

u still haven't been around to my new place mate .... about time ....

And then again i haven't been to ur place .....

To be quite honest ... i don't think that I have seen most of my slides properly on the wall via projector .... as soon as i get them i put them away into the boxes ...

Hey - at least i managed to get a new light bulb for my projector on my last trip to Germany .... took me only about one year ....

U should come around one nite ... still owe u a couple of beers for the camera lease ....

Cheers,

frank
