Artist's Description

THIS P-51 D MUSTANG WAS MAKING A “HIGH SPEED PASS” OVER THE NUT TREE RUNWAY IN VACAVILLE CALIFORNIA. I TOOK THE PHOTO IN 1999 WITH MY 35 MM CANON EOS620 FILM CAMERA AND A 100-300MM CANON AF TELEPHOTO LENS. I WAS A GOOD WAYS AWAY FROM THE RUNWAY, SO THE LONG FOCAL LENGTH WAS CRITICAL TO THE SHOT. I WOULD HAVE PREFFERED TO HAVE BEEN CLOSER, BUT I WAS ALREADY AS CLOSE AS I COULD GET. I TOOK THE ORIGINAL 3X5 PHOTO AND PLACED IT IN ONE OF MY MANY PHOTO ALBUMS,,,WHERE IT SAT AND SAT, YEAR AFTER YEAR,,,NOT BEING SEEN BY ANYBODY BUT ME. SO,AFTER I SCANNED THE PRINTED PHOTO INTO MY COMPUTER I TOOK IT TO ADOBE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 2.0 AND TURNED IT INTO A PHOTO THAT LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN 1945. THE ONLY THING THAT STOPS IT FROM ACTUALLY LOOKING THAT OLD IS THE CIVILIAN PLANE ON THE APROACH RUNWAY, WAITING FOR TAKE OFF. I THINK IT’S A MOONIE AND THE HIGH POWER LINES IN THE BACKGROUND HORIZON, JUST ABOVE THE TREE LINE. I LIKED THE FINISHE LOOK, IT GAVE IT THAT REAL OLD PHOTO LOOK, THAT I WAS HOPING FOR. I’VE TRIED TO DUPLICATE THAT PROCEEDURE ON OTHER PHOTOS, BUT TO THIS DATE, I’VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO SUCCEED AT IT AGAIN.
