CNAC photos — in color

I’ve been neglecting this blog lately due to revisions of an article about my adventures in Iran earlier this summer, a lot of home improvement projects (a new deck and an art studio for Tina), and some good surf, but Steve Michaels just emailed over some excellent photos his father took while he was flying for CNAC, a few of which are in color (scanned from color slides), and too good not to post. Here they come:
