Anybody seen "Goldfinger"?





My cousin was stationed at Ft. Knox when I was stationed at Ft. Bragg way back in 1994.

Really, I figure I have all these photos...might as well do something with them. Besides, some of them aren't half bad. Somebody else might enjoy them.

A parrot tulip that used to grow next to my house. Really need to get more of these bulbs sometime.

Should have put this in the October thread since I took the photo around that time last month.

Oh well.



Meet Boris!

Got to have spiders to keep those other insects in check. But yes, I was a little too close to the subject while taking that photo. And the next day the web was gone.

If only I had the extra money. :-(

I'm a big Pontiac fan because of my Dad. We had a LeMans Can-Am in the late 70s with a 400ci motor, just like this Firebird. We traded it for a Station Wagon (That's an Estate Wagon for you folks across the pond).



Sorry for the image quality, I took this photo with my old phone.

Somewhere 5500 feet above one of the drop zones at Ft. Bragg NC.

As the 11th Doctor would say - "Geronimo!"



I used a Kodak disposable camera set on panorama to take this one. Didn't feel like taking the chance of dropping the Nikon I had back then. Wish I still I had it. Thing just disappeared one day. Such is life.

Forgot to add that this jump was either out of a C-130 Hercules or a C-141 Starlifter in 1994.

They don't use C-141s very much anymore, it was a four engine jet. Instead of the props used on the C-130. Very easy to get caught up in the jet wash when you jump if you're not careful...or you happen to be really unlucky. :-(

Now they switched over to mostly C-17s.
