Today we have some winter mountaineering, travel, and landscape photos from reader James Blilie. His captions are indented, and you can click on his photos to enlarge them.
Here is another batch of my landscape (and other) photos for your consideration.These are all scans of either Kodachrome 64 or Kodak Tri-X Pan black and white film, all 35mm.

Finally a couple of “ringers” First a lovely photo my Dad shot in 1950 in Bermuda: Boats in a regatta:
This is my Dad’s photo, taken in 1952 or 1953, at Tachikawa, Japan. This young man built for my Dad three solid-wood models of the planes my Dad flew on: B-24, C-97, and C-54. He’s holding the C-54, at Tachikawa City. We still have these models.
Well, Facebook to the rescue(!). I am a member of a Tachikawa Air Base group on FB and I posted the photo there. One kind Japanese member of that group tracked down this man. His name was Kozo Ozaki-san. He passed away in 2012; but his best friend, Tetsouro Miura-san sent the photo below of Ozaki-san late in life, and said the following, “This is my best friend Kozo Ozaki-san. Mr. Ozaki died of cancer on December 19, 2012. He was 84 years old . Both I and Mr. Ozaki met well at the airplane model club. I think Mr. Ozaki was very pleased to know Mr. Jim Blili [my father].”
My equipment: Pentax LX and K-1000 cameras, various Pentax M-series and A-series lenses; Tokina ATX 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom, a wonderful lens. Epson Perfection V500 scanner and its native software. Lightroom 5 software.
