A: This Photo
Netjets Citation X landing in St. Maarten.
Light contrast adjustment.
Your photo of Duggy "sniffing" the C-5 [in this edition of "POTW"] reminded me of the attached photo taken on the ramp at Rhine-Main Air Base in Frankfurt, Germany in the early 1970s. I was privileged to head the crew that flew this C-47D/44-76671 from Rhine-Main to Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas to install it in the Lackland Airmen & Heritage Museum.

Mission 26: The Big Endeavour
The space shuttle Endeavour, during a unique journey through the streets of Los Angeles. It was a parade atmosphere as an estimated one million people came out to line the streets over the course of the three-day trip.
This photo was taken on October 13 from an altitude of 2,500 feet as she crossed the intersection of Crenshaw and 48th Street. Cropped, level adjustments, and reduced for file size.
Wings on the Flats
Taken on San Leandro mud flats with a Canon EOS Rebel.

The Cheap Suits Flying Club
Over northern California, taken from my Piper Colt.
Mosquito Aircraft Restoration, Auckland, New Zealand
While visiting Ardmore Air Field in New Zealand, I was lucky to be invited to have a look around the Mosquito workshop, where it was just finished being rebuilt. This is the world's only WWII-era Mosquito bomber capable of flying and will be at Oshkosh [in 2013]. Unfortunately, I only had my phone to take the photos.

How Many Horses in My Plane?
As seen from the taxiway of Montricher Air Field, which is lined with a small pathway, sometimes very crowded.
Photo taken with a Pentax Optio P80 camera at 1/500 sec, focal length 28 mm, F 2.8. Slightly cropped, and original file reduced to under 1 MB.
The little terminal building at Furnace Creek Airport in Death Valley National Park, California (LO6, elevation minus 210') is notable for efficient use of space.

Pentax K-X. Cropped and touched up with Gimp 2.8.
Gene and Teresa at Oshkosh.
No changes. Point and shoot.
Streaks of Light
I took these with my iPhone of a newly polished SNJ owned by Vic Krause. Gorgeous day for photos. I had to put a black-and-white filter on it to give it the classic look!
Mount St. Helens
My daughter took this from the window of a Southwest Airlines flight en route to Tacoma.
Cell phone shot taken at 10,000' elevation.
