Supply And Command

You Could Say It's Just Plane Sailing

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


A couple of months ago, I drove through the Riverina to the Outback town of Temora in New South Wales, to do some hands-on research on a World War II-vintage Spitfire for a novel I’m working on at the moment, called "The Jadu Master".

I arrived there on the Friday afternoon and went straight through the town to the Temora Aviation Museum, where I spent of couple of hours in a hangar, putting the finishing touches to my research on the famous fighter plane.

The next day, while I waited for the flying display to begin, I was one of the first people to drive into the car park - which filled up very rapidly. While I waited there and wondered how long it would take for the fog to lift, I saw these two buildings to my left.

I asked permission to take these photographs - which I reckoned would be ideal for the weekly Doors theme.

I like the juxtaposition of the patterns and textures in this pic, David.

I love answering the phone: Command Center .. especially on mornings like this one when everything seems to be conspiring against me .. and everyone seems incapable of NOT saying/doing things to make me want to ...

I love that you ask permission to take the photographs. So many people don't.

I was in the Ukraine recently and learned how to ask in their language before I took people's pics.
