Yesterday I was able to go out and shoot the USS Reagan as she departed Yokosuka, Japan…
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.
I found out today that two of my photos are to be shown digitally, it’s always cool when this happens! Both of these exbitions were possible through Gurushots.com.
Today I’m shooting the USS Ronald Reagan departing Yokosuka, Japan.
Wisky was the nickname of the USS Wisconsin (BB-64), a WWII era battleship that, like her three mighty sister ships, America couldn’t seem to do without. She was originally commissioned in 1944 near the end of the Second World War but would be recommissioned two more times and decommissioned a total of three times!
In the summer of 2017 we moved from Coronado, CA to the Washington, DC area. I was so floored by everything around us in the northern Virginia/DC area that I completely let the blog fall by the wayside…
This year I decided to post nothing but my stock patriotic photos for the long Fourth of July weekend using photos of flags flying where I live in Coronado, California.
I could have taken an incredible photo of this lady with the sun going down behind her as she sat on a blanket and an American flag pillow over her husbands grave, our conversation was better than any photo I could have taken.
