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?

C-47. The Berlin Train

290-04 290-08The historic airplanes – a Douglas C-47 and a Douglas C-54 – displayed at the Airlift Memorial near Frankfurt Airport invited some abstract photography. The white cloud (one of my favourite lighting situations) also helped.
