A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to take pictures of a great forest fire. He was advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly him over the fire. The photographer arrived at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Sure enough, a small Cessna airplane was waiting. He jumped in with his equipment and shouted, ''Let's go!''
The tense man sitting in the pilot's seat swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air, though flying erratically. ''Fly over the north side of the fire,'' said the photographer, ''and make several low-level passes.''
''Why?'' asked the nervous pilot.
''Because I'm going to take pictures!'' yelled the photographer. ''I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures.'' The pilot replied, ''You mean you're not the flight instructor?''
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.
