This week’s theme features Scotland’s National Museum of Flight once more. It is home to a wonderful collection of aircraft, both military and civilian. The star attraction of the museum is undoubtably Concorde G-BOAA, but there’s plenty of other aircraft to see and enjoy too, and we certainly didn’t get around all four hangars plus all of the outside exhibits in a single day.
To bring this week’s theme to a close, my wallpaper today is this shot of a set of aircraft windows from one of the planes in Hangar 2. I like the way that the light is reflecting on the windows, giving the appearance that I’ve photographed a toy rather than the real thing. But it also turns out to be a pertinent choice for today, as today is my last day with my current employer, before I take flight for a new town and a new challenge.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s photos from the National Museum of Flight; they’re amongst my favourites from our day at the museum. It’s a wonderful place to visit with a camera – just make sure that you get there early, because there’s far more to see and explore than you can fit in a whole day.
I’ll be back on Monday with a new theme for next week’s wallpaper.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
