Good grief, Creaghorn - I have debts at the tax office - hope you don't work for those guys?!?

 

Well, here is a Photoshop work I did with a picture of me.

But there is a lot of retouche and some tricks - don't be afraid, I don't really look like that at all.

I did it some time ago, to create my alter ego: the Bordeaux-Red Baron

 

:grin:

This pic was something to do with taking the mickey out of the Absolut vodka advert. I forget the details. Anyway, it qualifies as silly. :grin:

Great to see you all! And funny!

 

Widowmaker, you must have missed the post before your last one - otherwise you

would have "bitten" at that picture.

 

Rickitycrate - you don't look at all rickity to me; rather like a senior sportsman.

Perhaps a Marlin angler?

 

Louvert - it's already half done! Just attach some wings from the next Eindecker

you shoot down, and there you go!

 

Av8er - where is the picture?

 

Crossbones - give your kids the camera. They'll do a silly one.

 

 

Edit: Widowmaker - your junior seems to have all the stuff I dreamt of as a kid!

Lucky boy!

My desired uniform was blue, with a yellow band along the leg sides. It had a

black hat with a golden cord around and crossed sabres on the front. A blue

shirt with double rows of buttons, a yellow neckerchief, white gloves, black

boots - you got it: the U.S. Cavallery. I never got one, and had to make it myself

from old blue jeans and other stuff. But in my phantasy it looked really good! Lol!

Well, I don't know if it's silly or not, but here's a pic of me and a Tiger Moth (I believe 1935 vintage, though I could be wrong...if you CAN correct me, please do).

 

I wasn't the pilot of course, though I have stunted a Robin aerobatic aircraft in a lesson from Sydney Aerobatic School.

 

I went to Coolangatta (south of Brisbane) to visit O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse to go on an arduous trek out to the grave of a WW1 RNAS pilot, Reginald "Rex" Haslam. His aircraft and passengers were lost SOMEWHERE between Brisbane and Sydney, and as there was no radio fitted, the search area was massive. Some 10 days passed, and everyone gave up looking. Except for Bernard O'Reilly, a chap who lived on the Lamington Range. He figured out if Rex didn't turn out to sea to get around the storm over the mountains, there were several high ridges that might have jumped out at him. He searched for three days. Remarkably, he found the wreckage. Pilot and Co-Pilot both died on impact, and a few passengers. But three passengers had survived. After a week or so, the least injured passenger set off to try to get help. In the darkness, he stumbled over a cliff and perished. The other two were unable to travel, though one could crawl down to a creek and return with a thermos flask of water. After Bernard got out to them, he promised them he'd be back, and gave them his meagre supplies. He made his way to the nearest house, some day and a half away. Telephone calls were made, and two parties of men set out. One with doctors, medical supplies, and food hacked their way through the rainforest to get to the survivors, the other started from the nearest road, hacking their way through the heavy undergrowth to enable them to carry the injured out.

 

In Coolangatta, I decided to hire the Tiger Moth, asking him if he would overfly Rex's grave. We did so, and even stunted over the site, looping and rolling all the way back to the airfield. Mighty good sport.

 

I didn't make it out to Rex's grave. Even today, it is a very strenuous trek up and down mountain ridges, and due to the remoteness, a strict and rapid pace MUST be kept up, as it's too inhospitable to camp overnight. I'm afraid I didn't make it, and was forced to turn back.

 

Our Rex had already served in the infantry, suffering a horrific stomach wound at Gallipoli. He laid in a hole in no-man's land for 3 days, passing in and out of consciousness, packing his intestines back into his trunk when he "came to" again. Eventually returned to the beach by stretcher bearers, they told Rex "The sun is a bit hot mate, here...I'll put your slouch hat across your face for you". Essentially it was a signal to the stretcher bearers to not bother loading him on a lighter to take him to a hospital ship...this one was a "goner". Yet he survived. Repatriated home, he'd "done his bit for King and Country". No white feather for this chap. After he recovered from his injuries, he tried to rejoin, but they refused. So he paid his passage to England, and joined up with the RNAS. Did nothing really remarkable, but was an above average pilot according to his service record.

 

 

 

Hope you like the pic and the short story.

Av8er - where is the picture?

 

 

 

 

I couldn't get it to work. I can't seem to ever get pictures to work. How do you do it exactly again?
