Pearce Airshow

21 May 2012 at 9:06am

Last weekend was the Pearce airshow so I drove up to join Michael and his boy along with Markie Stothard.

I wanted to try and shoot something other than the planes and made a tast of just using one camera and one lens. I took my Fuji X-pro1 with the 60mm lens and that was it. No tripod nothing. It was great fun trying to see something other than the obvious. I have a bunch of shots I like so will post them up as I can.

This one interested me with the backlighting and the large insignia of the US Airforce aircraft looming powerfully above the people. The orange flags showing us the direction we are to be herded ¬†and forming a barrier between us and any control we think we have of our lives. Phew all that from a photo, I’m so deep!

    Art, metaphor and even a touch of conspiracy theory from a single pic. Nice work.
    (BTW what’s this “my Fuji X-pro1”? I thought your better-half had commandeered that particular toy…?)

    All I see is the rear end of a bloody big plane and a few people. Maybe I’m looking too hard at it.

    Merv, it must be one of CF’s “Alternative Landscapes” or something. Hard to see the rubbish bins, though.

    Careful Christian, you might be turning into a documentary photographer…;)

  5. I actually love the way the big belly on the guy on the left has a similar curve as the plane body. hehehe
