(Es). Historia: Geras de Gordón, León. España. La ventisca hace cosas caprichosas con la nieve y, entre esos caprichos, hay momentos que nos pone en situaciones complicadas. No sería el primer tejado de una casa que lo hunde el peso de la nieve; ese es el otro problema de los pueblos de León en estos días pasados además del más importante que es el acceso libre al pueblo. Caminando por Geras apareció esta antigua casa, de fachada gastada y ventana con una madera que habrá conocido más nevadas como ésta. La cortina que nada nos dice sobre si hace horas o años que alguien la abre para que entre la luz en la imaginada vieja estancia interior. Pegado a la casa está el cobertizo sobre el que la nieve descansa su tupé. El tupé de Elvis era negro y su reluciente traje era blanco. El tupé de la casa es blanco y su traje gastado.

Toma: La calle tenía unos 80 cm de nieve. Las piernas se hundían y el paso era pesado. Seguía la huella de Fray intentando hundirme lo menos posible. Los que venían detrás lo tenían más fácil. Girar el cuerpo para hacer la foto era una pereza permanente y un hundimiento mayor en la nieve: ¡Todo por la foto!. No podía hacer muchas más maniobras, ni cambiar fácilmente de posición, así que allí donde me quedaba de camino para continuar y me parecía la mejor posición… hice la toma.

Tratamiento: Con Aperture. Original en RAW. El encuadre está supeditado a quitar una parte de la izquierda que no tiene interés para la escena y que corta la fachada abruptamente, como se aprecia parcialmente en la parte superior izquierda. El histograma lo modifico para conseguir un contraste mayor incluso en la fachada, cortando las luces altar y moviendo las centrales hacia la derecha. Oscurezco ligeramente las luces bajas para conseguir más contraste con la nieve. Subo ligeramente la saturación y vibración de color. Aplico una viñeta sobre gamma en lugar de sobre exposición, lo que produce la pérdida de fuerza en los bordes, oscureciéndolos.

¡Eso es todo amigos!

(En). The History: Geras de Gordón, León. Spain. Blizzard makes whimsical things with snow and among those quirks, there are moments that puts us in difficult situations. It would not be the first roof of a house that sinks the weight of snow; that’s the other problem of the people of León in these days also passed the most important thing is the free access to the village. Walking Geras appeared this old house, worn facade and window with a wood will be known more snowfall like this. The curtain that tells us nothing about whether hours or years ago someone opens to let light into the imagined old interior room. It stuck to the house is shed on the snow rests his toupee. The Elvis toupee was black and shiny dress was white. The toupee to the house is white and his suit worn.
Taking up: The street was about 80 cm of snow. The legs were sinking and the passage was heavy. Fray footprint still trying to sink as possible. Those behind had it easier. Turn the body to make the photo was a permanent laziness and higher buried in snow: All for the picture !. I could not do more maneuvers, or change position easily, so where I was on the way to continue and it seemed the best position … I made the shot.

Treatment: With Aperture. Original RAW. The framing is subject to remove a portion of the left and of no interest to the scene and cutting the facade abruptly, as partially shown in the upper left. The histogram modified it to achieve greater contrast even in the facade, cutting the altar lights and moving plants to the right. Darken slightly low for more contrast with the snow lights. Slightly increased saturation and vibrancy of color. Apply a vignette on gamma instead of overexposure, causing loss of strength at the edges, darkening.

That’s all folks !!

(Fr). Histoire: Geras de Gordón, León. L’Espagne. Blizzard rend les choses fantaisistes avec de la neige et parmi ces bizarreries, il y a des moments qui nous met dans des situations difficiles. Il ne serait pas le premier toit d’une maison qui coule le poids de la neige; ce est l’autre problème du peuple de León dans ces jours également adopté la chose la plus importante est le libre accès au village. Marcher à travers Geras apparu cette vieille maison, porté façade et fenêtre avec un bois qui sera connu plus de neige comme ça. Le rideau qui nous dit rien sur si les heures ou des années il y a quelqu’un ouvre pour laisser la lumière dans l’ancienne salle intérieure imaginé. Il a collé à la maison est répandu sur la neige repose son toupet. La pompadour Elvis était noire et brillante robe était blanche. Le perruque de la maison est blanche et son costume usé.

Prendre: La rue était d’environ 80 cm de neige. Les jambes se enfonçaient et le passage était lourde. Fray empreinte encore à essayer de couler que possible. Ceux qui sont derrière avait plus facile. Tournez le corps pour faire la photo était une paresse permanent et supérieur enterré dans la neige: Tout pour la photo!. Je ne pouvais pas faire plus de manœuvres, ou changer de position facilement, donc où je étais sur la façon de continuer et il semblait le mieux placé … Je ai pris la photo.

Traitement: Avec Aperture. Origine RAW. Le cadrage est soumis à enlever une partie de la gauche et d’aucun intérêt pour la scène et le découpage de la façade brusquement, comme le montre partiellement dans le coin supérieur gauche. L’histogramme a modifié pour atteindre une plus grande contraste même dans la façade, coupe les lumières de l’autel et le déplacement des plantes vers la droite. Assombrit légèrement bas pour plus de contraste avec les lumières de neige. Légèrement augmenté la saturation et le dynamisme de la couleur. Appliquer une vignette sur gamma au lieu de surexposition, causant une perte de force sur les bords, assombrissant.

Voilà, c’est tout!

Roasted cauliflower soup (recipe from fat free vegan kitchen), cold leftover rice with soy sauce and baked tofu.

I’m trying something new for a while, taking pictures of my meals and posting them here as part of my plan to take better care of myself when Peter’s not around. If I post photos then I’ll feel accountable to someone other than myself and be far less likely to eat gross things like popcorn slathered with nutritional yeast and call them supper.

I’ll continue until I’m home again (once I’m with Peter again for good, I’ll be too embarrassed to pull crap like the popcorn-for-supper thing), or until I get bored with it, or until I get fed up with not being able to take decent photos of food in this apartment. I won’t bother photographing my breakfast, though, as I eat the same thing every day: Nature’s Path Heritage ancient grains flakes with plain soy milk and fresh fruit. Yawn.

Just to be clear, this isn’t a weight loss plan (although I have gained some weight in grad school, which I expect will correct itself if I just stop living like a grad student). Just a get-back-to-my-healthy-self plan.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | De Havilland-Canada DHC-1A Chipmunk, Pennzoil Special:

De Havilland originally designed the Chipmunk after World War II as a primary trainer to replace the venerable Tiger Moth. Among the tens of thousands of pilots who trained in or flew the Chipmunk for pleasure was veteran aerobatic and movie pilot Art Scholl. He flew his Pennzoil Special at air shows throughout the 1970s and early ’80s, thrilling audiences with his skill and showmanship and proving that the design was a top-notch aerobatic aircraft.

Art Scholl purchased the DHC-1A in 1968. He modified it to a single-seat airplane with a shorter wingspan and larger vertical fin and rudder, and made other changes to improve its performance. Scholl was a three-time member of the U.S. Aerobatic Team, an air racer, and a movie and television stunt pilot. At air shows, he often flew with his dog Aileron on his shoulder or taxied with him standing on the wing.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing 367-80 Jet Transport:

On July 15, 1954, a graceful, swept-winged aircraft, bedecked in brown and yellow paint and powered by four revolutionary new engines first took to the sky above Seattle. Built by the Boeing Aircraft Company, the 367-80, better known as the Dash 80, would come to revolutionize commercial air transportation when its developed version entered service as the famous Boeing 707, America’s first jet airliner.

In the early 1950s, Boeing had begun to study the possibility of creating a jet-powered military transport and tanker to complement the new generation of Boeing jet bombers entering service with the U.S. Air Force. When the Air Force showed no interest, Boeing invested million of its own capital to build a prototype jet transport in a daring gamble that the airlines and the Air Force would buy it once the aircraft had flown and proven itself. As Boeing had done with the B-17, it risked the company on one roll of the dice and won.

Boeing engineers had initially based the jet transport on studies of improved designs of the Model 367, better known to the public as the C-97 piston-engined transport and aerial tanker. By the time Boeing progressed to the 80th iteration, the design bore no resemblance to the C-97 but, for security reasons, Boeing decided to let the jet project be known as the 367-80.

Work proceeded quickly after the formal start of the project on May 20, 1952. The 367-80 mated a large cabin based on the dimensions of the C-97 with the 35-degree swept-wing design based on the wings of the B-47 and B-52 but considerably stiffer and incorporating a pronounced dihedral. The wings were mounted low on the fuselage and incorporated high-speed and low-speed ailerons as well as a sophisticated flap and spoiler system. Four Pratt & Whitney JT3 turbojet engines, each producing 10,000 pounds of thrust, were mounted on struts beneath the wings.

Upon the Dash 80’s first flight on July 15, 1954, (the 34th anniversary of the founding of the Boeing Company) Boeing clearly had a winner. Flying 100 miles per hour faster than the de Havilland Comet and significantly larger, the new Boeing had a maximum range of more than 3,500 miles. As hoped, the Air Force bought 29 examples of the design as a tanker/transport after they convinced Boeing to widen the design by 12 inches. Satisfied, the Air Force designated it the KC-135A. A total of 732 KC-135s were built.

Quickly Boeing turned its attention to selling the airline industry on this new jet transport. Clearly the industry was impressed with the capabilities of the prototype 707 but never more so than at the Gold Cup hydroplane races held on Lake Washington in Seattle, in August 1955. During the festivities surrounding this event, Boeing had gathered many airline representatives to enjoy the competition and witness a fly past of the new Dash 80. To the audience’s intense delight and Boeing’s profound shock, test pilot Alvin "Tex" Johnston barrel-rolled the Dash 80 over the lake in full view of thousands of astonished spectators. Johnston vividly displayed the superior strength and performance of this new jet, readily convincing the airline industry to buy this new airliner.

In searching for a market, Boeing found a ready customer in Pan American Airway’s president Juan Trippe. Trippe had been spending much of his time searching for a suitable jet airliner to enable his pioneering company to maintain its leadership in international air travel. Working with Boeing, Trippe overcame Boeing’s resistance to widening the Dash-80 design, now known as the 707, to seat six passengers in each seat row rather than five. Trippe did so by placing an order with Boeing for 20 707s but also ordering 25 of Douglas’s competing DC-8, which had yet to fly but could accommodate six-abreast seating. At Pan Am’s insistence, the 707 was made four inches wider than the Dash 80 so that it could carry 160 passengers six-abreast. The wider fuselage developed for the 707 became the standard design for all of Boeing’s subsequent narrow-body airliners.

Although the British de Havilland D.H. 106 Comet and the Soviet Tupolev Tu-104 entered service earlier, the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8 were bigger, faster, had greater range, and were more profitable to fly. In October 1958 Pan American ushered the jet age into the United States when it opened international service with the Boeing 707 in October 1958. National Airlines inaugurated domestic jet service two months later using a 707-120 borrowed from Pan Am. American Airlines flew the first domestic 707 jet service with its own aircraft in January 1959. American set a new speed mark when it opened the first regularly-scheduled transcontinental jet service in 1959. Subsequent nonstop flights between New York and San Francisco took only 5 hours – 3 hours less than by the piston-engine DC-7. The one-way fare, including a surcharge for jet service, was 5.50, or 1 round trip. The flight was almost 40 percent faster and almost 25 percent cheaper than flying by piston-engine airliners. The consequent surge of traffic demand was substantial.

The 707 was originally designed for transcontinental or one-stop transatlantic range. But modified with extra fuel tanks and more efficient turbofan engines, the 707-300 Intercontinental series aircraft could fly nonstop across the Atlantic with full payload under any conditions. Boeing built 855 707s, of which 725 were bought by airlines worldwide.

Having launched the Boeing Company into the commercial jet age, the Dash 80 soldiered on as a highly successful experimental aircraft. Until its retirement in 1972, the Dash 80 tested numerous advanced systems, many of which were incorporated into later generations of jet transports. At one point, the Dash 80 carried three different engine types in its four nacelles. Serving as a test bed for the new 727, the Dash 80 was briefly equipped with a fifth engine mounted on the rear fuselage. Engineers also modified the wing in planform and contour to study the effects of different airfoil shapes. Numerous flap configurations were also fitted including a highly sophisticated system of "blown" flaps which redirected engine exhaust over the flaps to increase lift at low speeds. Fin height and horizontal stabilizer width was later increased and at one point, a special multiple wheel low pressure landing gear was fitted to test the feasibility of operating future heavy military transports from unprepared landing fields.

After a long and distinguished career, the Boeing 367-80 was finally retired and donated to the Smithsonian in 1972. At present, the aircraft is installated at the National Air and Space Museum’s new facility at Washington Dulles International Airport.
