I've spent a fair amount of time this year cleaning up the keywords on my aircraft photos, which I manage in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Having finally finished the task, I thought it might be useful to document the system I devised – one which evolved continually as I cleaned up.
I managed to get to the airport today just in time to see the third arrival of Singapore Airlines' SQ291 flight from Singapore and Canberra, along with quite few other spotters, as this was the first arrival on a weekend day.
There are close to 1,000 photos in my Wellington Airport album on Flickr and I've been planning a little something to celebrate reaching the milestone. While I was going over the contents of the album, it struck me there was something missing.
I took a week off work this week and decided to head out to Wellington Airport today to see what would show up, with specific hopes to catch two types I've not photographed in action before. I succeeded with one of them.
It was a heck of a weekend just gone, with no less than three visits to Wellington Airport for the purposes of picking up and dropping off family members. As appointed chauffeur, I took my opportunities to train my camera on activities as time allowed. I did this both from some of my usual spots around the airport and also from inside the terminal.
I've been doing a lot of scanning of my father's black and white negatives over the last 6 months or so and I decided to treat myself by scanning some of my own old negatives. When I say old, mine are from 2001.
Already I have more pics from another visit to Wellington Airport. Don't get used to this frequency of updates, though!
I managed to mis-time a short trip out to Wellington Airport earlier in the week. Too late to meet up with someone and too early to see much in the way of movements. I only took a handful of shots and three made the grade.
A while ago I had written on the old site about the origins of ZKARJ on the web and had mentioned the AeroImage branding.
Recently I was going through some very old backups – I can't remember why – when I came across an archive of the AeroImage site. What I discovered there jogged my memory that AeroImage was not the first!
