This F8U-2 was parked at NAS Dallas and I photographed it as the sun was going down, kissing the horizon. As a 16 year old in 1960 I did not know this was called the golden hour in photography. Looking back now I see what a great opportunity I had to take photos of operational Navy planes in great lighting conditions and I wish I had shot more film and had something other than my $16.00 point and shoot camera. Brownie Starflex with fixed lens.
