A Night Over Germany
Although the P-51 Mustang was not primarily a night-figher, the iconic American shape is shown here figuratively sweeping other fighters from its path. The above piece, “A Night Over Germany,” was composited from, and based upon, a display of aircraft exhibited at the Imperial War Museum, London, UK.
The P-51 Mustang’s place in modern world history is well-known. During World War II, its superior technology enabled fighter escorts to accompany American bombers on the long trip to and from targets in Germany. Prior to the introduction of the Mustang, round-trip cover was not possible and American bomber crews suffered significant losses as a result. The Mustang changed that.
And because of this change, Mustang technology helped create a world quite different than that which might have been had the Mustang not appeared in the skies of 1943.
At My Feet
|What’s at or beneath our feet is considered to be of no consequence in our daily lives. Yet, when we stand or sit and ponder what is there, the meaning changes. See what I mean in the gallery “At My Feet.”||How do you photograph a truck? Now, there’s a subject that has been photographed so many times that no one could possibly count them. Is every possible approach already passé? Find out in the “Truck Study 1″ gallery.|
