Jon Crispin's Notebook

Air Force Two

Posted in History, Landscape, News, Travel by joncrispin on 02/11/2012

I had to take my iMac over to Dan to have the hard drive replaced (Apple warranty).  Fortunately it hadn’t died yet so not much more than an inconvenience.  I have been keeping my laptop open in order to skype with Cris in the West Bank and the screen saver went to a folder of postcards that I used to make and send out to friends.  I really like some of these images and realized I could share them here on my wordpress site.  It’s fun to think just how much of an impact the digital world has had on photography.  I used to print 10 or 15 of these and mail them to friends and clients.  Now I can post this and who knows how many people will see it./  This picture was taken at the airport in Elmira, NY.  I spent a lot of time covering the 1984 presidential race, and I think this was the Bush VP plane.  It reminded me of the election on Tuesday and thought it would be a good time to encourage everyone here in the States to get out and vote.

      Thanks Barb. Just skyped with Cris. She will not have to go into Gaza, but instead will stay in the WB and go to Jenin which is supposed to be pretty nice. Come out some time soon. I still want to go to the Korean restaurant with you.

    I came here via the Collectors Weekly article.

    But it’s funny in a way. My partner went to high school with the current pilot of Air Force Two.

    I love the Willard Suitcase photos (as well as the others on your blog).
    Thank you,

      Michael, thanks so much for your comment. I really enjoy the connections that people are making through my photos. Air Force Two pilot; what a cool job. J
