Default Something From Nothing

On May 20th, 1927, Charles Lindbergh landed his Ryan monoplane at Le Bourget Field
outside of Paris. He had taken of the previous day from Roosevelt Field on Long Island.

Having been told that Lindbergh was approaching Paris, nearing the completion of his
historic solo trans-Atlantic flight, hordes of photographers raced to Le Bourget for an
opportunity to capture Lindbergh's landing on film.

As his Ryan, christened The Spirit of St. Louis crossed over the threshold of the runway,
dozens, if not hundreds of cameras flashed madly as the aircraft flew through the blinding
beams of search lights.

The image above was not one of those taken on that warm Parisian evening... No, the
image above was created from the image below... A nearly worthless shot of the sister
plane to Lindbergh's, taken in a museum with a Fuji S5100 digital.

I have deleted countless photos that seemed not to be worth keeping. The exercise of
creating this "period" image made me glad that I saved this original.

My regards,

C.C. Jordan

Nice job on the selective blur.
