7 on 7 is a photographic blog circle of friends posting 7 photos on the 7th of the month. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and walk through our circle with us. It will do your heart and soul some good.
Ahh the end of the year is here! On this Pearl Harbor Day, I have some shots from the Wings Over Houston Airshow which is held annually on a late October weekend at Ellington Field. It’s a two day event and this year the Sunday show day had clear blue skies for miles and miles. Alas, we were there on Saturday when the ceiling was low and the airboss had to cancel much of the flying for the day (insert sad trombone noise here). While the vintage aircraft were grounded, we still saw the Navy Blue Angels do a low altitude show for us and they are always good time. Hooyah, Navy!
I got us sunrise photography passes which gave us early access and the opportunity to walk among many of the planes. We didn’t have the colors of sunrise, but we had some reflection from the rain and some pretty amazing clouds until it got totally socked in. We’ll always be suckers for an airshow and the one in Houston is always a good time rain or shine. Well, more so when there is less rain and more shine, but there is always next year. And next year, it’s the Air Force Thunderbirds turn to take to the skies. Oooo yeah.
Before I send you on your way to the next photographer, I just want to say to my 7 on 7 friends that it has been a magical year. Thank you for all you have shared. You amaze me every month. Wishing you all inspiration and perfect light.
Please continue around our circle for a peaceful post of Christmas cheer from the ever talented Tara Romasanta. It will make your day merry and bright. I mean, she has Santa right there in her name for goodness sake. (Come on, work with me people!)
Blessings for your holiday season and in 2019.
