Brian;
the great thing is with the internet, these posts and their treasure trove of information that you and all the other guru's have blessed us with...will live on essentially forever. I do know what you mean; my best friend for the first half of my life, passed away a few years ago and it was THEN that I realized I only had one picture of the 2 of us together, and Im half out of the shot LOL. We were always too busy causing trouble to document any of it...on second thought its probably a good thing in some respects LOL

I took what I thought was a lot of photos, but compared to now it wasn't crap. I just lost one of my old friends yesterday and yes, I went thru photos and could't find many. I know I have some of his cars, he had a Model A coupe that sat in my yard for a while and I got a few of it in the back ground of other shots. Also him doing a burn out in his 65 Nova that we put a 350 in. Good times, but yes it is all left to my memory as it wasn't documented any other way.

Brain, your picture brought back forgotten memories. I had not thought of a flash cube in 40 years, lol!

Today's cell phones have decent cameras for the average Joe like me. I am not interested in "gallery" type images, just images that are clear and show the topic.

Just this past week while shopping at Costco my wife was looking at book titles for books to download to her Nook. Instead of her writing each one down, I just took pictures of the covers. Simple ,easy , and free.

Thanks for the "flash"back memory

What you are describing is what I call "Snap shots" I differentiate between the two as "Snap shot" and "Photograph". And I love them both. Like the 100 point near perfection show car, and the daily driver that has dings and scratches but can be equally as interesting to look at, the "snap shot" of a family member or friend simply living life can be just as interesting and precious as a beautifully prepared photograph.
Sometimes we forget about the simple "Life" photos, next time you and your wife are out snap a photo of her picking out one of those books in the store and print it out and put it in an album. Those are treasures to me.

I did a lot of things I shouldn't have as a kid living next to a large creek. Every time I see a flash cube I think of tearing one apart to make four "blasting caps" for oxy/acetylene bombs! Darn near blew my hand off with one!

Just a comment on the wood graining.......we do it here.To the point that it fools folks who should know better.

Theres a few proprietary processes we've developed here at the shop that just aren't discussed.Some of our "real" wood grinding equip won't even be shown in a pic....Just sayin,I understand when shops are a bit reluctant to share certain things.Some of the learning curves are loooong and $$$.So picking up the process(very late in the game) vs figuring it out for yourself "can" be a little self-defeating.....well,thats one excuse.

The guy who taught this guy how to woodgrain was one of the best in the business and sometimes I wonder if he showed his friend all the tricks.

The guy who taught this guy was a master at it. He did a fiberglass boat once that was entered into a well known wood boat competition up at Lake Tahoe and it sat there the whole weekend without most who looked at it knowing it was glass!
