B-29 Enola Gay
This photo is of the B-29 bomber "Enola Gay", which dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan and helped to end World War II. I had no idea that the plane was on display until the first time I visited the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center about two years ago and I have wanted to return to shoot it ever since. It is awe-inspiring to be near an aircraft that has had such a large impact on the world, and I hope I was able to capture some of that feeling in this photo.
