A lazy Sunday afternoon

There is nothing like being different!! I am almost positive that no one on these blog pages has ever posted pictures on this subject before. LOL!!

We have a small airfield not far from where I live and if there is nothing else to do, it is fun to take a drive there and watch the parachutes for an hour.
I was amazed at how fast they come wizzing past and found it difficult to take the photographs because of it. I eventually found that by focusing the camera on a certain point and then waiting for the jumper to come into that point, was the only way to do it.
Two for the price of one!! LOL!!
Almost! Almost! Nearly there! Just a few more steps! Whoa now!!!
