I used a slight angle on those first photos of the terminal interior that I've already shown you.
Here are a couple of evening shots (to better hide my lens reflection) looking straight on to the scenes.
Which makes the mirror illusion look much better, than in the first 2 shots.

Please excuse the lighting, this is a boxed diorama and very difficult to photograph (for me that is).
It represents a WW II aircraft production line. There is only one aircraft model but using two
first surface mirrors, one on either side, you can look down the line and count 13 aircraft

Greg, looking great, nice to see the pier is fully functioning.

Bob, the effect is fantastic, I was wondering why each plane had a worker in the same position, ha - got me.

Thanks! Dave, Bob, Carl, Tom, Frank & Pete, for your nice comments.

Bob, thanks for posting your aircraft production line photos. That really shows how mirrors can be used to great advantage, in making things appear larger than they really are.

Bob, exceptional model. Do you know the angle of the mirrors?? I need to create a similar effect on a planned stamp mill and knowing what angles you used may provide a starting point for my project. Thanks in advance.

KP, No angle at all, any angle would have destroyed the effect. Both sides of the box are
first surface mirrors straight on. If I had used any angle it would have made it look like the
assembly line was curved or bent at the mirrors. There are lots of details that need to be
addressed. At first I wanted to have the flags flat on the back wall but then every other one
would have looked backward. I also had to pick a time before aircraft went to only the port wing
with an insignia because that would have made every other plane wrong, etc. I have backward
markings on the tug so they show as right in the mirror.

Hi everyone, I took a few nice night photographs of Magoun pier this past weekend.
I posted a couple of them in this month's photo gallery, but I thought I should include some of them here as well.
The nice thing about night photography is it hides most of my mess that I have in the background here.
This first photo that I'll show you is my favorite one, of all the ones that I've taken so far.
I hope you will enjoy them.

Looks great Greg!

By the way - Did I see an LED light string inside the terminal- reminiscent of what's used on a Christmas tree?
