+John Getchel it is just a little hand held device like egg beater but it got only one spinnig feeder. It makes the liquid milk into rich and creamy frothy like cream (semi_solid form) ;)

Here's a little quiz for you movie trivia fans out there. Can you figure out what it is? It was pretty cool to see in person! :-)

Thanks for playing along everyone! As some of you figured out this is the actual model used for filming in the movie Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind! I loved model building as a kid and dreamed of working in the Hollywood model shops back in the day! The builders let their sense of humor show in the details. I saw an R2-D2 a graveyard and a U.S. mail box! :-)

The model was donated to the Air and Space museum and is on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly Virginia.

The right place

At the right time! This was one of those moments where the amazing light lasted only a matter of seconds and I was lucky enough to be...

I'm a long ways from the beautiful Shenandoah National Park now but I just had to post this beautiful shot!

In the gap

Recently I saw someone post a photo and said don't forget to turn around. I agree! Back in December I was in Tucson Arizona shooting sunset from Gates Pass. If I hadn't turned around I'd have missed this beautiful scene looking back at the city! Oh and you better not fall down while standing here! Better hope you got your tweezers if you do! :-)

Exploring America in my truck!
Introduction

I'm a guy who loves photography and adventure! In fact I've been taking and developing my photos for over 25 years!

After some upheaval in my life I've decided it's time to hit the road and see this great country I live in. I'm traveling across America and photographing as much of it's beauty I can manage to find. I hope I can meet you and we can go shooting together. Let's go!!

Bragging rights
I made the Kessel Run in under 11 parsecs! :-)

Great and inexpensive! I don't need anything fancy just a clean comfortable room but this place went beyond those expectations! It was a big room with a fridge and microwave. The bed was big and comfy too!

This place is awesome! Beautifully maintained gardens and an astounding number of butterflies to watch and photograph. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everyday they release the newly hatched butterflies and the staff member gives information about each type as they are released! Don't forget your camera with a macro lens because there are beautiful tropical flowers too!!
