2015 CAF AZ Wing Museum posted in Photo gallery and Lr gallery

July 17th, 2015

Visited this small CAF museum in Mesa, AZ on July 3rd 2015.  I posted pictures of our visit.  The restoration area was small but quite busy.  All of this was shot with my wife’s point-and-shoot FujiFilm camera.  B-17 “Sentimental Journey” was not there which is the reason we went.

tomswarbirds.com Lightroom Galleries undergoing upgrade from Flash to TTG CE4 Page (html)

July 17th, 2015

The position of the global digital community is: Adobe Flash is dead due to all the security flaws found in this plugin.  I have started upgrading the old Adobe Flash Web galleries (pre Lightroom 6) on the site to TTG (The Turning Gate CE4 Page template).  TTG substitutes html for Flash (files are created in .php).  With the advent of Lightroom 6 (Lr6) new features, I am re-evaluating and re-editing past slides (time consuming).

The TTG visual slide presentations in Lr Gallery will be vastly different than the original Adobe flash shows.  Most notability, TTG will only display 50 slides at a time for the desktop slide show.  After 50 you must hit “Next” to go to next page and hit the play arrow (top right).  I am told a fix is coming to allow full slide show playing.  The mobile version of TTG is unaffected but does not offer auto slideshow presentation (you must click the right and left arrows on the slide to advance forward or backward (annoying).  You can watch the same slide shows with full play/replay/pause by going to the “Photo Gallery” Tab.

The only item on this site that remains “Flash” is the header of every tomswarbirds.com page (excluding piwigo library).  A fix to remove this flash is coming as well.

The C-45 is a military transport version of the Beechcraft Model 18, which began its 32 year production lifespan in 1937.  The C-45 was first ordered by the U.S. Army Air Corps as a staff transport, but a navigator training version, the AT-7, and a float-version, AT-7A, soon followed.  It was further modified in 1941 as an advanced trainer, AT-11, complete with a small bomb bay, transparent nose, and two .30 caliber machine guns and used for bombardier and gunnery training.  The final wartime variant was the photo-recon F-2.  The Navy and Marine Corps used the versatile aircraft as the JRB and SNB.

The Rescued Film Project Interest Story

February 28th, 2015

rescued_file_project

What is The Rescued Film Project?

The Rescued Film Project is an online archive gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930’s and late 1990’s.  Each image in our archive was rescued from found film from locations all over the world, and came to us in the form of undeveloped rolls of film.  We have the capability to process film from all era’s.  Even film that has been degraded by heat, moisture, and age.  Or is no longer manufactured.

Why do we rescue film?

Every image in The Rescued Film Project at some point, was special for someone.  Each frame captured, reflects a moment that was intended to be remembered.  The picture was taken, the roll was finished, wound up, and for reasons we can only speculate, was never developed.  These moments never made it into photo albums, or framed neatly on walls.  We believe that these images deserve to be seen, so that the photographer’s personal experiences can be shared.  Forever marking their existence in history.

Film is an organic material that degrades over time.  We are committed to rescuing as many images as possible, before they’re all gone.

We Need Your Help.

Found film?  CONTRIBUTE it to The Rescued Film Project for free processing and archiving.  Expired film developing or old film developing.

Do you recognize someone in the project?  Please let us know so we can reconnect them with their lost, but not forgotten images.  info@rescuedfilm.com
