Squadron, The National WWII Museum – New Orleans, Louisiana

One of the most impressive and largest buildings at The National WWII Museum is The US Freedom Pavilion:The Boeing Center. The Boeing Company and the US Department of Defense jointly funded this impressive building. While there are many noteworthy airplane museums, this one’s dramatic for its vertical orientation. There are 4 levels to view the airplanes. I wish I could have spent more time here but, I still had a lot more of the museum to see. It’s a big place spread over five buildings.

The first photo is with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 Pro lens and at a 24mm equivalent mounted on the OM-D E-M5 Mark II. It was woefully inadequate for capturing the width of the facility. I used my compact wide-angle the 9-18mm f4-5.6 below on the PEN-F, more or less from the same place. It still was not wide enough to include everything I wanted. Notice also how the wide-angle increases distance. So the ceiling appears further away in the 18mm equivalent below, compared to the first image at a 24mm equivalent.

Luckily, I brought another lens with me that gave an interesting, though exaggerated perspective. I’ll feature photos from that lens, in an upcoming post.
