SCALE – PERSPECTIVE AND THE SIZE OF THINGS

SCALE

Shooting from the upper levels in Tuskegee Airmen’s hangar in Massachusetts, the size of things … people and aircraft are definitely in scale.

I participate in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge 2017

    Great series of shots! That first one took me a moment to figure out…Nice perspective!

    Good shots. You must have been standing on the plane for the first shot.

      I was actually on a blacony. There was a long stairway from the ground to a third floor. I took pictures at each level. It was really interesting, but I could only do those stairs once!

    I had the same thought as angloswiss :D. I am sorry you had to take the stairs, but the shots are really great.

      I looked at the stairs. Three long flights to the top, then down again. No elevator. I thought “If I do it a little bit at a time … and I take a lot picture on the way … I can do it.” I did it. VERY slowly — and there was a bathroom at the top (YAY!). Then, slowly, down. With more pictures. Garry was busy getting ready to perform his bit in the show, so I had plenty of time to do this. I wish we’d stayed long enough to see the antique cars in the OTHER hanger, but by then, it was getting late. It was a long, circuitous ride home through some very tiny, twisting back roads … I’m hoping there will be a next time!

      They have some first rate mechanics who work on these old planes constantly. Many of them still fly. Beautiful work done by some beautiful people.

        They really look wonderful and I wouldn’t be surprised that they also can fly.

          It requires more or less constant work, but they keep a surprising number of them in working order. I want a RIDE!

      It was my only excursion into an airplane hanger, so I guess that makes me a little bit lucky πŸ™‚
