B-29 – ‘Little Boy’

Where does the B-29 fit in History?…

 

If you haven’t fully appreciated my new work (by clicking above and following the links to a higher resolution image), you might want to do that now before reading on – cause I’m about to clue you in on some things going on here like I rarely do. ;)

 

View the image – What do you see? Keep looking and ponder where it’s taking you. Although the plane was initially photographed on the ground at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, I have placed it flying above the white sands near the missile range in New Mexico. The reason is beyond aesthetics.Note the custom nose art featuring my grandson JC as the ‘Little Boy’. His more ornery than angry look down as he shakes a stick below – ‘take that!’, fits the narrative well and is also a commentary on the sad removal of the nose art on many of our historic aircraft.

 

If you follow, ‘Fat Man’ is also there although more subtle. WW2 buffs – See where we are going? By now you’ve noticed ‘The Gadget’ in the ‘Trinity’ area of the piece. This tower and the shock-wave were initially intended to be much more subtle, but had their way when I officially released the piece on July 16 of this year ;)

 

There are lighting and textural effects I’ve created here to help set the mood, and of course I’ve painted in the propeller blur, changed some things, and a lot more touch-up to finish out the piece.

 

I’d really love to hear your overall impression of this newest aeronautical work, your thoughts on  execution of the details, and especially ‘what it means to you’?

You can purchase this Artwork along with other vintage aircraft & more in my Online Shop.

Thanks,
Jamie Rood, Photographic Artist
