We photographers always try to see our photos as being expressive and telling a story. We could also ask - which is the best medium for telling a story? or does it require more than one? With digital technology and the internet providing easy and inexpensive access to all forms of multimedia, will there be an edge to those who embrace it and use combinations of tools to get their story across? I don't know - just  pondering.

Yesterday shooting at the Aerospace Museum in Toronto my buddy and I shot stills and some video.

"Maytag" fighter plane engines? Who woulda thunk!

Here is short Google Video clip I took to tell the story:

You bring up a good point.  I think always we should ponder what equipment or techniques would best achieve the objective.   We all have access to basically the same equipment, its how we use it that makes the difference.

The Canadian Aero (1958). All were cut up and destroyed for national security.

Shot with a 10-20 Sigma Lens (10mm setting) in close proximity to the fighter plane reconstruction:
