Tomcat

By: Carter Berg

The photograph on my door is the tail wing of a U.S. Navy F-14 Tomcat jet. At the age of twelve I started collecting skateboards and skateboard stickers. I was attracted to the color and symbolism of the graphics. Around the same time the movie Top Gun came out. The planes they flew were Tomcats. That was the beginning of my passion for airplanes with the F-14 being my favorite. I chose this image because of its strong graphics coupled with the fact that they are painted on my favorite aircraft. The image symbolizes the sacrifice of U.S. military personnel for which I have great respect and reverence. This picture takes me back to the roots of what inspired me to become a photographer. ~ Carter Berg
