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

In the summer, we took a day trip up north to get away from some of this oppressive heat we have in Phoenix.  We were just outside of Sedona and stopped at this little visitors center with this great view.  Sony NEX-5N, Sigma 60mm, f/6.3, ISO 100

1947 Mercury Woodie


Today’s photo is from this year’s Russo  & Steele auction.  This 1947 Mercury was about to go to auction when I passed by.  The chrome, the lines, the details, really make these old cars stand out.  Sony NEX-5N, SEL16mm, 1/50, f/5.6, ISO 3200

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
