My uncle, brother and sister-in-law took a trip to the Imperial War Museum in Duxford the other day. The museum has a similar type of envionment to the one in Dayton, Ohio that my wife and I visited earlier in the year. I took 431 photos and have split them into the following sets on Flickr:
Here’s my favorites from each gallery:Going into the next gallery was really quite exciting as all the aircraft in there are either flight worthy or are being restored to be able to fly. Most of them had sheets over the cockpit areas, but walking through a door I saw a fantastic and fully operational (but undergoing maintenance) B17 Flying Fortress called “Sally B”. I knew immediately that this was one of the B17’s used in the Memphis Belle movie as the famous plane and then saw on the right side of the cockpit that it is still painted as such. The Sally B paint on the left side of the cockpit is perhaps a bit risqué, but I’ll post a pic anyway! You can get to all the galleries here or select from one of the individual hangars below to view more.
I met my wife through the hobby in 2006, and consider photography to be a massive part of my life. I don't consider myself a professional, and have never made any money (though it would be nice). I take photos to remember something, and because deep down I feel it fills a void for something I need to do.
My first 'real' camera was a Fujifilm Finepix s7000, it was a point-and-shoot with options to shoot manual, and it allowed me to learn and re-learn everything I would need going forward. I upgraded to a Nikon D5000 camera in 2010 and haven't yet been able to upgrade again yet.
You can see most of my public photos on Flickr, which I use primarily as an online backup.
