Shane’s Flying Disc Show

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.

South SlickR FlickRs and South Sliders Merge.

Thank You For The Feature Photo. The Feature Photo is the top photo!

Painting by Susan Lolley!

The hardest part of creating albums is staying consistent with labeling the albums.  I fail often in this respect.  However I am very close. I may miss a sorting event by a letter or two or even a number.  But I stay at it. I make mistakes as fast as I can.  When I began creating my WordPress page I had in mind that it would be a great place for our South Group backup in case Facebook explodes. Web page space on WordPress is expensive.  So I began using  an awesome embedding tool that WordPress provided.  This tool enabled me to create slide shows of our friends from the FlickR website.  So I came up with a name and called them South Sliders.  Then the sliders from FlickR quit working for about a year or more.  They hyperlinked to FlickR but did not let  my friends view them one at a time from the WordPress page.  FlickR blamed WordPress and  WordPress blamed FlickR.  That took me two months of talking to support people.  I was at a stand still.  So sometimes I loaded photos to my WordPress and created galleries right on the Wordress site.

Then I found a plug-in for FlickR called SlickR FlickR.  I kid you not. It makes WordPress and FlickR play well together again. SlickR FlickR has some features I haven’t learned yet, however I will try to get more creative as I go.  Then my web page wigged out and all my menus became scrambled.  Facebook  was putting all their time into Meta and my Facebook pages are on acid or something.  Everything wanted to blow up at once or fall down like a house of cards.  So I hung on as hard as I could.  Things are beginning to run a bit more smoothly on all ends.

My Goal for this evening is to unpause (un-archive) our South group and put a link to a revised page.   I am going to merge all my South Sliders and SlickR FlickRs into one page. Hover your finger or mouse over the middle of the far right side of the lead photo and arrows will appear. You can then navigate the photos as fast as your computer or phone will let you. You might bump a hyper-link and end up on FlickR but I hope you make it back. Or hang around on FlickR. Sometimes FlickR smashes a photo up on the WordPress side. If I can figure out how to fix that I will!

So here we go!

This is the latest SlickR FlickR to date 20211110

These will be updated on a regular basis. When update my subscribers don’t get a notice. If I can find a way to fix that I will. I will try to stay consistent and announce in our Facebook Group when I update.

And I have tunes below!

Dell Guthrie

Dell Guthrie sounds better than Procul Harem.

I found him turning on the ladies at The Little Briar Patch before they hit the big time!

Dell knows a good photographer when he has seen them work just like l know a good musician.

On the stills, hover your mouse to the middle of the far right of the first photo. An > arrow shows. Then you can surf within this page.

The Lil

Dell Invited me to The Famous Muddy Creek Cafe.

Musician dude in the corner was all over The Dolly Parton scene and rode around with Crash Craddock as one of The Dream Lovers in one of THREE giant Prevost buses!. Doug Palmer can build a Steel Guitar and play the hell out of one. When he gets bored he plays a sexy sax!

South Rowan Class of 1973


William Deal and Judy Castor Deal

The Deals gave Shane permission to publish these collections!

All of these SlickR Flickrs are in working order. It took me two years to find the right formula. That means if you line up and touch the middle of the far right of the photo, magic happens. You get a cursor. Keep clicking on that cursor and you can see your friends fast or slow. You can also click on the flickr link if you want to view them the flickR way! Don’t let the top photo fool you. That is called a feature photo. It stands alone.

You might think these albums are duplicated but they aren’t. FlickR is fighting me. I changed the lead photo for The Deal’s presentation. However no matter how hard I try both of these blocks jump to the group shot. They are different albums. If you find me wrong and I have duplicated an album please find me.

Some of your photos may have gotten squeezed while viewing Flickr on WordPress. If that bothers you you can view the photo on Flickr and get back to normal!

Judy and William!  Thank You so much for putting this together.  The before and after segment had to be particularly tedious and time consuming.  I really admire the both of you!


Bonus from Shane!

The trains have all been restored by now.

South Rowan Class of 1975 35 Year Re-Union by Sammy and Shane

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.
