Random pictures thread

  1. I recently went to see the site of the shipwreck Peter Iredale, ran ashore in 1906. She was a 284' sail ship from Liverpool England, headed for Portland Oregon. Before she could be towed back to sea, she tipped over a little bit, preventing the rescue. Crazy thing, this was the first time I've actually been there to see it, and it's practically in my back yard!

    Show us what you've got! Share your pictures below!
     
  2. The Kinsol Trestle in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. Carmen and I drove out to it a few weeks ago. It's one of the tallest trestles in the world and was finished in 1920. They used it to transport old growth trees for lumber.

  3. You did say "random".
     
  4. Oh, my, Rob. Did you capture that shot? You musta spent quite a while waiting for the right moment! Lol
     
  5. I kinda think those random moments happen quite often from what I am seeing. :D

    This is an old gold mine barn on a creek way back in the mountains where we sometimes ride our dirt bikes.
    Still has those old hand crank oil depenser tanks, and a bunch of PVC piping for sluicing in it.

  7. My grandson and I at this dinosaur park in front of the Virginia Beach airport. Some guy builds them and donates them. He even has a pterodactyl sitting in a tree. You can imagine how much a 6 year old likes it.
     
  8. Just some equipment at the potash mine I worked at in Vanscoy, Saskatchewan.
     
  9. ...
     
  10. This was our family "top gun turret" as mounted by my father on the old well, for the "new crop" of grandkids to play in. After WWII, stuff was sold cheap surplus, and the sellers often lied, about "hydraulic pumps," "motors" and all kinds of equipment you could allegedly use. This thing has 28VDC motors, hardly very useful for most "farm" applications. It was in my Grampa's barn for decades, and my cousins and I shot down countless enemy aircraft, LMAO

    This was made by "Crocker Wheeler," and was used for gun training only--- not combat. It was either used mounted on the back of a truck for training, or in a AT-11 "twin Beech) A/C

    One year a couple of warbirds came into town, and I mentioned that "my family owns a top turret" They thought I was nuts, but I insisted, and they ended up going over and talking to Dad. He sold it to them for all of 500. I think he gave it to them.

    the ONLY body panels not damaged in this little mishap were the trunklid and the rear bumper (this was before you could go three wide down 16th street)

  29. This is Norma Jean, a Burmese Python. She is about 10' long and weighs close to 100lbs. She is one of my favorite little critters at work. There is a animal science program at the college I work at and there are a bunch of exotic animals there. I get the pleasure of getting her out of her cage for some stretch time.. She loves men and likes me to hold her.

  36. Cool,
    Touched that "Christ of the Abyss" staute myself. There were some very large Barracudas there when we dropped in on that dive.
     
  37. Our church has a 40 year missionary in PNG, works with the Kobon people. He translated the entire new testament into the Kobon language (and a 2nd tribes!) and then published it. They didnt even have an alphabet! Then he set up a school to teach the natives how to read it...truly a miracle in this day.

  42. Was wondering if someone was going to pick up on that Barracuda thing. Lol . .

    They were big Barracudas, glad they looked and turned the other way.

    Here are a couple old film photos from our underwater camera from that dive back in November 1995.
