Decorations, Crafts And A Rich Dude

Yesterday was a bit of a busy day at the Ol’ White House. First came the holiday decorations preview and with that always comes a craft time photo op with the First Lady. It was followed up later in the day with a visit from some top CEO’s for a meeting with the President. I’ll spare you the super exciting pictures of them walking down the driveway. But Lloyd Blankfein, the CEO Of Goldman Sachs came out after the meeting to do some TV interviews with some nice light going on.

So The President and A Turkey Walk Into A Bookstore…

Okay, so that’s not what really happened. But it’s the holiday season so that means turkey pardons and shopping trips are plentiful. This past week President Obama pardoned some Turkey’s and went to a local bookstore with his daughters Sasha and Malia and shook some hands.

Catching Up

And now for the last of the catching up posts. Here’s a bunch of pictures from the last few months.

The Boneyard

And now part two of my Davis-Monthan post, the Boneyard, actually known as the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG). Its the main storage facility for all U.S. and some foreign military aircraft. The aircraft in the AMARG range from those being stored temporarily to ones being prepared for scrapping. I’ve been trying to for years to get access and thanks to an assignment from Politico it finally happened. I shot both film and digital. Whats in this post is from the digital batch. Once I get through my scanning backlog i’ll be posting some of those as well.

Oh Yeah, You’re Supposed To Put Pictures On A Photo Blog- Davis-Monthan Style

Needless to say the last few months have been a bit busy. Hence my complete disregard for the ol’ blog. With things slowing down a bit I can finally catch back up.

Back in August I got to take a little trip out to Tucson on behalf of Politico to photograph at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, home of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group as well an active base chock full of A-10 Thunderbolt’s. Also known as the Boneyard. I shot both the active base and the boneyard itself. For the first post back, here’s some pictures from the active part of the base.
