    In those rare moments that my wife actually sees any of mine, it's "you never take pictures of people".
    Luckily my son is interested, actually more than interested as he's an aircraft mechanic, so I know my years of photos and slides, books, memorabilia and Air Classics back to 1970 will have a good home.

    Ain't that the truth! When my kids were young, it was always "Oh, dad...not more airplanes?!"

    I have over 70,000 images stored and I'd venture to guess fewer than 1,000 are of actual humans!

    I too have thousands of slides of not just airshows/air races, but things like climbing up the back of Half-Dome or the Grand Canyon,ect and there are no pictures of me.
