C-130 Hercules

There was also that one time when we lived in North Carolina where we got to see a C-130 Hercules. According to Wikipedia, “the C-130 Hercules is the longest continuously produced military aircraft at over 60 years.”

I took this with an iPhone and the original was very dark. I increased the exposure, “fill light”, and clarity and then ran a preset to give it a vintage look. Oh, I also cropped out a stand of lights that looked like it was coming out of the plane’s tail. Fill Light is a slider that older versions of Lightroom used. Sometimes my older pictures still end up with those sliders. Here’s the original:

Enola Gay

Humans love to attach significance to items. We want to experience the gravity. We understand the weight of events and moments.

This was a big one.
