Airplanes, Airplanes and Airplanes....

I spent today at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, with a local Meetup group of photographers. If you haven't been to the Pima Air & Space Museum, there are over 350 aircraft, spread over 80 acres and 5 hangars. It's an airplane lovers playground. Most of the aircraft are military, however there are many non-military planes, from a single engine trainer to a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

This is a great place to create unique images. Unique aircraft, variety of sizes, shapes, condition, are on display outdoors and in various hangars. Different shapes, colors, tonal ranges, and an opportunity to see things from different perspectives, create a lot of opportunity. Here are a few of my 'opportunities'

I confess, a wee bit of compositing, but made the image more interesting....
