Day 258

Steel Etc. has a couple of mountains of old steel to process! ~Curtis in /\/\ontana! {!-{>

Day 257

I used to photograph this guard rail post fairly often, but I haven’t in the few year since I retired.  It is down at the end of the wide spot near Rainbow Dam on the Giant Springs Road.  I don’t know when the top sheared off.  It could have been from someone hitting it.  This […]

Day 256

Late season sunflowers down by the River.   ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 255

The water in the River is really low.  I don’t know if this is what they lowered it for, or if they are just taking advantage of it to dredge a channel for the stream runoff. The water should be up to at least the log at the top of the photo.  This is where […]

Day 254

In about two and a half weeks I will be giving a class at the Great Falls Camera Club on Shadows and Silhouettes.  Here are a few of my favorites I have taken! Shadows. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 252

I finally got to work on the Camper again!  I added some framing to the roof section that was sagging.   It stopped the sag! Here is a close up.  The 1×2 was as a spacer so the 2×2 would fit into the lid better when it is closed. But I didn’t like the way […]

Day 246

More Motorcycle camper! The sleeper from the end. A detail of the end. Looking the other way. The view from within. The overall look.  As you can see there is a small problem: the roof sags.  I will need to put in another 2×2 support lengthwise and across each end.  The ends will make it […]

Day 245

More Motorcycle camper! So it is starting to take shape.  The roof swings out and then you raise the ends to support it.   Now you can see how it looks, for those who didn’t understand my exquisitely hand drawn 3D plans! From the back end. From the front. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 244

More Motorcycle camper! One minor little problem I hadn’t foreseen.  That sheet of plywood inside the lid unfolds to form the roof.  Or it would if it was about 3 inches narrower… So, take the lid off and cut it to fit. The top/lid without the roof section. Then all back together and it will […]
