Long before airliners.net even existed, this photographer covered Tampa possibly more than anybody else ever has. A long time film photographer, his collection would amaze many. By the time he expressed interest in uploading to airliners.net, many of his prints would not pass screening and airliners.net's high standards. Eventually, he let the SLR fall by the wayside and entered the digital photography world. While he taught me the history of many airlines before my time, and the numerous views around Tampa international Airport, I shared my limited knowledge of digital photography with him. Today, Ozell Stephens Jr. has reached a milestone that is worthy of note: 100 photos on airliners.net. I know he has long looked forward to this achievement as he is a man that loves to share his photos with the world, and I am happy for him. So congratulations Ozell, I hope you can relish in this achievement and I'm glad I've been able to help! Here's to the next 100!
Here's the 100th Photo:
