Love the angle of this shot. I'm not into flying (3 pretty creepy experiences, including a near miss on a big commercial plane, left me very happy humans live on the land and walk!)

I love retro and vintage photography and quality amateur b&w's are of particular interest to me. This really captures a piece of everyday life perfectly. The framing is great-got the Goodyear name, dirigible is at great eyelevel and not perfectly centered (which I like :))

Also captures period clothing. I love the action in the photo too.
