The 2017 South Sound R/C Swap-Meet

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, the South Sound R/C Swap-Meet was held at the Olympic Flight Museum, Olympia, Washington. This gallery of images “tells the story” of both the public event and the setup on the day before. For a more comprehensive view of how the event is prepared and conducted, I have also included a link to a gallery of large images taken at the 2014 South Sound R/C Swap Meet. You can find the link in the “Resources” section at the end of this gallery. The gallery of larger images also shows some of the beautiful aircraft normally on display in the museum.

As can be seen from some of the images below, it was snowing Friday during the setup. On Saturday, though—there was neither snow nor rain.

This gallery is best viewed on a PC or laptop. The default image size is 1000 pixels—although you can view scaled-down images on small monitors, phones, and tablets.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed capturing them.

About the Images

The images were taken with a Canon Rebel T3i. For this event, I used a standard Canon EFS 18-55mm lens. Since I did not use my external flash, the images are not as sharp as they could have been. All images received simple processing in Photoshop and were saved as low-resolution JPEG images that were optimized for the Web.
