I can’t think of a five or six month period since 2012 where I’ve taken out my camera so little, but that’s not to say I haven’t been engaged with photography in some way. Since I didn’t really get out and shoot, I concentrated on the future by researching potential gear changes.
While serving 30 years in the US Navy I learned something very important; being a good or bad person had nothing to do with skin color, religion, gender, sexual preference, birthright, or financial background. That’s a lot, but it’s true.
A few months ago I submitted a couple of photos to a Guru Shots photo contest and ended up placing in the top 102 photo in their Striking Shots Competition. This photo is now on the Digital Camera World website, #43 of 102.

On days when I can see Mt. Fuji, I drive to the other coast; however, when it isn’t visible it’s time to go with the backup plan and today that plan was to shoot at Verny Park right here in Yokosuka.
This photo is all about getting lucky. We had moved to Fort Belvoir, VA in August 2017 and, like I normally do when we move to a new area as a military family, I explore close to home first before venturing out. Why? Because there are many times sites near, that are easy to miss when you head out looking at all the popular places first. It’s a lesson learned after living in Italy…

Here’s my first attempt at a video, it combines still and time-lapse images. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!
