While out on the runway this morning I ran into an older gentleman that was explaining how the Lockheed Electra that I was shooting was actually the plane used in Casablanca at the end of the movie (about 4 min from the end). The story was interesting but after doing some research – it seems that there is more to the story – see the link at the end if you want to read about it.
While I was shooting I decided to shoot in Black&White and then later in post I actually converted to old sepia toned paper – this was inspired by the gentlemans story.
True or not – it made the photos more special to me. I hope you enjoy them.
A beautiful plane no matter what the “real” story is. Here is the link if you want to read more.
