Greetings ATS!
I love this site and check it daily but now I feel it is finally time to start contributing threads! This is by far my favorite site on the internet and my favorite thing about it is that you have a mix of all sorts of people, and most importantly we have some the best researchers on earth.

I am a freelance Photographer and professional cinematographer. It goes without saying I have somewhat of an obsession with camera equipment. I'm also somewhat of an amateur astronomer and have made a dslr camera mount for my 8" dobsonian. Also, as you may have deduced from my username.. I'm into cars.

I chose today to formerly reveal myself because today as I was driving down a nearby highway I noticed a few very anomalous cloud formations and decided to take a bunch of pictures. Now I feel obligated to post what I have seen for scrupulous analysis by the best so perhaps I can wrap my head around it. I have read allot the chem-trail debate and I have always stood firmly on the fence about it. I have pilots in my family who have also told me it is bogus.. Days like today make me wonder though.

Heres the link to the THREAD about it...

I'll save that for my coming post where I will show the pictures, which I am about to compose right now.

Look forward to evolving from lurker to contributing member.

edit on 20-1-2013 by Z32Driver because: add link!

Welcome, friend. ATS is a great place, but always remember to be skeptical. Among the genuinely intelligent or articulate, there are plenty of trolls, shills, legitimate disinfo agents, and good ol fashioned morons.

Though you are a lurker, do try to ignore them. Don't interact with them. Don't pay them any attention. Don't even argue with them as the Devil's Advocate. That only validates their intentional or unintentional stupidity.

Hello friend! Same to you! I noticed your input involving my thread, much appreciated! I check this like more than anything else so I am always going to be available for reflection. BTW I'm from Savannah so it follows that I love anything to do with pirates or sailing / pillaging.
