We had some great light the last minutes of the shoot so we put KT to work. This is the great lady at Stallion 51 who made the afternoon possible for us. I very sweet lady who was all too happy to get in WWII WAC clothing and pose for us with the T-6. This is straight shot from the camera. As simple as can be, my kinda shooting.
When I made this click, I was telling the group I was thinking B&W, making a click that is very similar of those shot in the ’40s of WACs doing their pride in their work. And it just brings my point back into the spot light. If KT hadn’t had faith that letting a photographic come to their planes (a first for them), we wouldn’t have been there. Without her putting on this great period clothing and posing, we wouldn’t have this brief window back in time. It’s the people that make this aviation, photography and world special. Can’t thank KT & Willie enough for bringing this point home for me today.
