You may have been re-directed to my photography page if you were looking for Shane’s Flying Disc Show. Dream Weaver just blew me away. I could only get so much help from Go Daddy before they refused to help me get through the hard parts of web pages, like connecting FTP sites with Dreamweaver and Go Daddy.
I am utilizing Facebook, FlickR, Youtube, Vimeo and WordPress to bring you Shane’s Flying Disc Show and Shane K. Smith Photography. I have been a photographer and Flying Disc Thrower since elementary School. I made my first money with a camera in High School and my first money with a Frisbee in 1978. I also made money by teaching Tennis since I was 13. I am writing this in 2020.
I am going to set my menus up on my web pages so that Shane’s Flying Disc Show comes up first. Then all my other stories will fill in alphabetically.
Thanks for showing up in here!
Please make time to click on follow and fill out the email alert part near the bottom of the page. Share on Facebook or other sites. I put some tunes at the bottom of each page. Please come back often. I get motivated knowing someone is out there!
As of 20200514, I temporarily deactivated Facebook so I could concentrate on this project. I’ll be back on Facebook soon. I am shooting for a return to Facebook by June 12, 2020.
To get to the best of Shane’s Flying Disc Show please find me in the menu above.
Then I do a 180 round house kick and use the Flickr albums as embedded slideshow panels because I can’t afford the web space on Word Press. Some of the Flickr viewers have between 500 to 16,000 photos in them. That overheats the internet and if you are in an album that should have more photos in it, click around on the viewer and it will take you right to flickr to finish off!
That’s easy for you to say! It took me ten years to find the slideshow button! So We can use two styles. One way you can go through our photos one by one manually. Or I can do an occasional slide show with it.
South Sliders is a little tricky and takes some finesse on the phone especially. I was finally able to get my web page to load on just a telephone connection. I couldn’t break into Wal-Mart’s wi fi so I used my phone’s connection. When you see South Sliders a couple of Slide Shows will move the photos every five seconds or you can push one of those dots to get to another photo. The FlickR slider is touchy on the phone. I found if I barely touch on the far-right side in the middle, the arrows come up and I can surf each slider with my thumbs. If I bump it too hard it takes me to Flickr.

You can pause the Doobie Brothers or let them loop on. I have more tunes at the bottom of the page. You can also click the > or < to make the slides move faster!
Hover your mouse over the albums below and click away. I rely heavily on the < and > keys. I often hold one > down to watch my life flash before me.

My 1975 RIP album is not complete. We have been known to put all the way alive people in here. Just ask Frank White or Ricky Morris. Since I have combined 1973 to 1977 my information is piece mealed. I’d rather be honest about it because what I don’t know will totally amaze you!

If this album loads it should play over 16,000 photos. If it doesn’t you have to go to FlickR to see them. The slider has about three different FlickR links built in it. Hover your mouse to find the link that works for you.
This Particular album is a bear! The slider view here only shows 6 pages of 162. The beauty is, you can go to flickr by clicking on the links around the frame.

These are a few extra promo shots saved from the display case from a friend.
These next two albums are located on FlickR. But they will play here on WordPress by magic. You take your mouse an hover it over the middle of the far right side of the album then a cursor appears. They will also bump and hyper-link to FlickR. You can view them slowly or quickly by keeping your mouse of the cursor. They move as fast as your Ram will let it go. Sometimes the jump from FlickR to WordPress bends the photo out of shape. But it is always something! The very top photo is called a feature photo. So there is no need to click all over it.
I have a bonus Beach Babe photo in this album.
Hopefully Julie will aim us at some of her photos.

This is an interesting side effect. I was hoping I could juggle adobe and wordpress. But for now The animation effect is still scrolling or appearing to load on the WordPress end. It may mean that i use the collage on spark but not put an animation in the display.
Update 20210809. The .mp4 created by adobe only takes 844kb. Problem solved!
My theory has some merit. This method leaves me with some space saving options.
I collect many images from my friends and assemble them into one place. Thanks to the Safrits for sharing these awesome photos.
In an effort to afford web space of all kinds and find ways to bring our work to you I have learned to juggle. FlickR and WordPress were playing well together once, but not anymore. I still hyper-link to FlickR. Now I will begin learning how to hyper-link to adobe. This means I don’t have to use my allotted 200gb limit on Worpress. I can shot50 gb in one session so it is hard. i don’t want to shrink anything either. So my friends can help me learn by staying with me and giving me feed back, like that was easy, That was hard, I can’t make it open or I like FlickR better than adobe or vice versa. Good constructive criticisms makes me learn.
Shane and Seven Up raised awareness and money for Muscular Dystrophy in the neatest of ways.
Shane had an idea and was living in the middle of the State. I had just done the last end of a school tour and money was thin. This park in Lancaster was PERFECT for me. There were six clean Tennis courts then a field to throw Frisbees in. I said “READY” to this one willing partner. I airbrushed a disc to him that floated perfectly and softly in his arms. Next time around he was tipping and coming close to delaying.
“You guys have to help get me in shape! I have a two month tour coming up with 7-UP! I walked in the building to the marketing rep and had 20 bucks gas money to get back home. I came out with a five grand check and a Green Paint job for Sugar baby. Thank You guardian Angels. As far as I was concerned I had three beautiful Angles to help me. Three school teachers that saw me get swarmed by their kids.
My Sugar Baby is 7-Up Green now! Let’s rock!
Back then ’84ish we had contact sheets and went to the paper and developed the film, presented the editor the shots. I always asked the photogs if I could pay them to send me the contact sheet and postage as I’d be four hours down the road. I just kept making the front page!
Remember I am scanning a contact sheet thumbnail that I was lucky to get.. I’d be on the payphone with four rolls of quarters getting things organized. And PLEASE, PLEASE send a contact print and a special print to me!
I wish I had 8×10’s of all of these. We are just beginning a 30 day whirlwind idea with this guy known for stirring up three different towns in a day. For God’s sake he made front page more than he ever got to see! For the life of me I can’t find the Photographers name. She had to take these shots back to her paper and develop the show with intoxicating chemicals.
Be sure to click on any photo you like to make it Biggie Size.
Working so hard! We all wanted the front page!
Remember to click on these pictures. I am not beyond posting photos twice. Please let me know if I do. Play match game. I will make regular adjustments to each page as I go. But it is important I make time for my own history. There will be a future. But I want my history in a place you can go to so I can say I told you so!
