USS Arizona Memorial 45


Today’s photo is from a trip I took to Hawaii 10 years ago.  We were going to Maui, but being a history guy I had to go to Pearl Harbor.  We took a day trip to Oahu, visited the USS Arizona and drove around Waikiki for a little while.  This is part of the USS Arizona Memorial where the flag flies at half-mast.  Canon A70, 5.4mm, 1/1000, f/5.6

Washington DC-22DSC00557


I know it’s been a couple days since Halloween, but I’m sure some of you are still drinking pumpkin something-or-other.  I took this photo on a trip to Washington D.C. a couple years ago.  We were staying in Silver Springs Maryland which isn’t far from D.C.  As we were walking around on the day we arrived, we passed this house with these mini pumpkins on the ledge above their door.  Sony NEX-5, SEL1855 @55mm, 1/100, f/5.6, ISO 200
