I visited the aircraft carrier USS Lexington this past weekend. There are about 20 different planes on exhibit. Did I write down which one this was? No. And now I am mad that I can’t link to non-artsy photos of it. :/

I follow a blogger Amateur Airplanes who might enjoy a trip to the Lex. There is an extensive collection of model airplanes by Texas hobbyists on board.

I would have posted a picture of the collection, but the lens I was using just wasn’t doing the exhibit justice. I was using a fish eye to distort items. I didn’t gain anything by distorting the planes.

At the distance necessary to capture detail of model planes, a fish eye lens behaves much like your “regular” wide angle lens. Except that it grabs in a lot of background that you don’t want. I had left the Micro Nikkor macro lens in the car. I regret that decision.

    1. Thank you! I enjoy taking pictures of planes. I rarely get a chance to, so it was hard to get an angle that I thought showed what I observed. Plus, I was using a fish eye lens. I learned something: not that great with fighter planes!
