People will be looking up at the sky today to view the eclipse. I had an opportunity for a cute composite idea fall from the sky two weeks ago. Before the start of school, I took pics of two brothers. Sometimes I take snap shots of kids just being funny but not particularly something parents would want an 8x10 of for the wall. When I was editing the sitting, an idea started to come to me for the composite above. Below are the images I used to make the composite.

I showed the boys the work in progress and they approved with belly laughs. They asked me if I was going to make any others and I admitted that I had a few more ideas flying around my brain. I thought of them sitting on the runway promoting their wagon rides with a sign and airplanes in the background. I decided I should go out to the Conway Municipal Airport at Cantrell Field. Nearly every day I made plans it was either foggy or rainy and time was running out to get this blog post up when I wanted. I started thinking of ways to improvise. I looked in my Hallmark Dreambook of Christmas ornaments and found the Travel Air Model R "Mystery Ship" plane ornament , 21st in the series that I would later purchase at Cherry's Hallmark at Elsinger. I figured an empty tin can might make a believable airplane hangar. Fortunately there was a bright sunny day at the end of the week (although it was hot and humid) and I made my way out to the airport. The friendly staff gave me permission to go out and shoot the images I wanted. They graciously told me to come back any time I needed. It was a beautiful facility with a welcoming atmosphere and paintings provided by Art on the Green. It's a nice place to spend the day watching planes take off and land. It's like a cool oasis in a shimmering field of soybeans.

Following, I thought I would offer up for viewing pictures I took in the same Lollie Bottoms area the airport is located. I took these photos with film for a project back in 1986.

On my drive this week I looked for some of the same landmarks but didn't come upon any I noticed but the ridge and levees. I didn't expect to see the dog since he would probably be over 200 years old in a dog's age.

 After the airport, I did use the trip to the west side of town to visit my favorite yarn shop, The Twisted Purl, where therapy dog in training, Loki, co-owns the store. If you are out on Prince Street, drop by to learn how to knit, crochet, spin and weave. The store is filled with a large variety of yarn, some locally produced. Loki will be very happy to greet you with a smile!

So I have just got to thank the two wagon flying thrill seekers for sending me on a small adventure of my own to make a fun composite!
