How on earth do you photograph something as big as the Spruce Goose? The only way to do so is either to use a fish-eye lens or to simulate one with a panoramic composite of, in this case, eight vertical photos, stitching together an image that gives a sense for just how completely this massive aircraft dominates the enormous space of the Evergreen Air and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. The famous aircraft dwarfs everything around it.
