“I’ll be back blogging here so don’t write me off just yet. Just trying to get settled as a family, make new friends at 59 years old which is harder than it sounds, and find my place in life’s next chapter.”
Yesterday I was able to go out and shoot the USS Reagan as she departed Yokosuka, Japan…
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!
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!
I was trying to capture this semi-historic house, or part of it, in a different way that could also show it’s place relative to the Hotel Del Coronado which by the way is the real gem. I’m not sure what the connection of this house to the Hotel Del Coronado could possibly be beyond…
Returning to Naples became more of a hobby than a military reassignment, somebody thought it would be fun to keep sending me back, and I loved just about every minute it.
I drove about 30 down the road to Hayama and the location of this selfie in Inamuragasaki, Japan to shoot photos of Mount Fuji. Today was definitely a great day!
Shooting at Mikasa Park this morning, a beautiful 19th century battleship in Yokosuka, Japan.
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 made a decision to take photos of Coronado, the city; sure I’d shoot the San Diego skyline, the bridge, and yes, sunsets, but I hoped to shoot more.
Returning to Norfolk with my family is now a priority, not just for visiting friends but getting our girls out and have some fun seeing incredible American History.
I have a few ‘go-to’ places to shoot in the San Diego area, places I can count on to hopefully take a few “keepers”; Point Loma is one of those locations.
