Yesterday I purchased a new $1.99 iPhone app called AutoPainter HD. First results look great.
For this photo, I started with a recent photo from the DC-3 celebration at the Santa Monica Airport. First I used DynaLight HD - great Shadow/Highlight app — and lightened the cockpit area. Then I applied the ultra contrast special effect filter in DynaLight. Next stop was in PictureShow where I used half gray, burned border, light leak 1 and grunge noise.
Final stop was in the new AutoPainter HD. I used the Benson setting.

Dallas Cowboy Helmet Carriers
When the Dallas Cowboys came to summer training camp at California Lutheran College (now University), local kids would adopt a player. Each day the kid would help carry water, helmets and pads for the player during the camp.
In 1983 about 40 kids had adopted a player and I followed them for a couple days at the Cowboy training camp. Above is one of the images.
I uploaded 19 images to this flickr set.

Back in 1983, while working at the Thousand Oaks News Chronicle, I spent a Sunday morning at Lang Ranch covering a cattle roundup. The "Sunday cowboys" would gather, separate and brand the cattle.
Lang Ranch is now a housing development at the northern end of Thousand Oaks. Back in the 1980s it was still a working cattle operation.
Here are 25 images from the shoot in a Flickr slideshow.
