Capturing History in Washington DC: Air and Space Museum – Heaven and Hell (9 of 12)

Air and Space Museum – Heaven and Hell

In the intro, I spoke of the Air and Space museum, heaven on earth for guy like me that like history, World War II and all the likes. However, the pictures I took there are not the best ones, some quite hellish.

I can only explain this with the following reasons:

  • I was just too excited about all the wares out there
  • I was challenged by the shadowy light, especially in the museum lobby
  • And I did not use my Sigma causing lots of airplanes to be clipped at the wings

But oh man what a museum!

    I really liked this series, as I travel to DC A LOT for work & often have downtime where I can explore the city and take photos. I think I’ve visited every tourist attraction in the city, some 3-4x! I found your blog via DPreview forums and you’ve got yourself a new reader!
