Beneath a B-36 Bomber (Pinhole Photograph)

This is only about one eighth of the total 4x5 image area of the photograph I recorded here. I'm holding a 30-foot pneumatic cable release, and the pinhole camera is roughly 12 feet above ground level. Note how distant/small the fuselage of the huge B-36 looks from this distance and considering the ultrawide nature of my pinhole camera! Recorded at Pima Air Museum in Tucson, Arizona.

 

One of the twin-engine jet pods is near me, and the three huge propeller engines are closer to the fuselage of the aircraft.
