This airplane picture was taken at the Airplane Museum just outside of Tucson Arizona.  You could spend an entire day here looking at a vast variety of older airplanes and helicopters.  It’s a photographer’s paradise and just in time for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

I was surprised to see this photo opp just inside a store at Caesar’s Palace Mall in Las Vegas.  Since the store was much pricier than I could afford I snuck a shot from just outside the store.   I zoomed in with my iPhone to snap the shot. The sexy gal is like a mannequin in front of a aircraft fighter plane backdrop.

A few years ago, the Greek and I visited an airplane museum outside of Tucson AZ and some of the older airplanes sported images just like this on the exterior of the fighter planes.  What guy wouldn’t want this tattoo on their arm… or at least on their fighter jet?

From along a highway near Chicago, Illinois this airplane was found nose down in a farm field. Maybe they were taking a little buzz around the airwaves and got to close to the electric lines.  Looks like it’s been in its resting place for quite some time.  I wouldn’t have wanted to be the passenger in the back!  Well, or in the front either from the looks of it!  Bet the pilot got one good bop on his noggin.

Still searching for the perfect sea plane picture and these are okay but not exactly what I’ve been striving to achieve.  The ocean color is nice and plane itself has a good contrast but the water spray could have been better.  They have not been altered with Photoshop and that might help to deepen the blues.  The problem is in taking action pictures.  Still, they could be worse, too so I guess I shouldn’t beat myself up.    It’s more difficult to get the exact composition while trying to follow the object in motion.   If I’m recalling right this was in St. Thomas, USVI, but recall exactly.   Hint for the future, tag your pictures if you want to remember where they were taken with my first digital Minolta.  The picture quality would have been much improved had I been using the Nikon D60 but that was still a few years off.
