The Berlin Train I

F-BO 5290-29Frankfurt Bonames Airfield (top picture) was photographed in 2010. I remember driving out to the Airlift Memorial at Frankfurt Airport afterwards but having no desire to photograph the historic airplanes there… However, I did return to the Airlift Memorial in December 2012 to photograph airplanes there (bottom).

Now it just felt right to combine pictures from the two sessions – showing the tarmac and a part of the wing of a Douglas C-54. They are both about aviation, and the principles of abstraction appear quite similar. Are these two in tune?

  1. For me, these are both strong images that play off against one another. In F-BO 5 (the shot from 2010), the power of the arrowhead shape is modulated by the textured weathering. In 20-29, the crispness of the contrast accentuates the geometry, whilst the partially-lit mechanical details add interest. Thanks.
