Well, all good things must come to an end. Unfortunately, that’s true for fine art photo adventures as well. On our way back from our time in New England, we took a half day to do a whirlwind tour of DC. In the 5 hours we were there, we visited the Capitol, Civil War Memorial, Air and Space Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. Here’s a selection of our favorite photos from the trip!
Above is a photo of some bird (I have a really good memory). Despite being perched on a branch, it is actually no longer living. To the right is a really cool piece of history for a guy that loves both photography and aviation. This is the actual camera used to photograph the Wright Brothers’ first flight. All those famous pictures you’ve seen of those first flights were taken with this very camera! Pretty cool stuff.
Below is one more photo from the session. In focus is the legendary Bell X-1, the first aircraft to exceed the speed of sound (in level flight) way back in 1950. In the foreground is the North American X-15, This plane still holds the record for the fastest speed ever reached by a manned rocket-powered aircraft. Enjoy the photos!
