I hope you all are well and I pray for our young souls going into combat for our sakes.
In addition to investing time into reading WWII history books, my snapshot side of me still beckons.
“EXPLORE” is a featured group on the photo website flickr.com. Out of the close to 2,000,000 photo uploads daily, about 500 are selected for “EXPLORE” by the website for “interestingness”. Some of my photos have been fortunate enough to be “interesting”, 19 in total.
The last four are below; hope they are “interesting” to you. Clicking on the images will take you to the actual photograph. 🙂
This is called “painting with light”. You leave the shutter open then use a flashlight to illuminate the subject.

A summary as of today of my photographs selected for “Explore” on flickr:
Airmen, Marines, soldiers and sailors – be safe.
Some submissions in response to “Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Small Subjects”.
While not as artistic or as interpretive as Cee’s, they ARE small… LOL
Just thought that was a catchy title…albeit a bit misleading like our media. Just a tad misleading…’cuz the butt’s the other end.
I guess the news guys are finally rubbing off on me after all.
But as I watched my kids and their friends play in the front, I felt like playing around with my new, fancy-schmancy Canon point and shoot – specifically hand held close-ups of the business end of a nice cigar.
It was amazing that an inexpensive camera such as this could take such equally amazing (yuk to some!) close-ups:
I did switch to my standard Canon DSLR to snap these fun snapshots of my kids. Little Brooke likes the distortion that erupts with this Canon 10-22mm lens…although a certain pro photographer buddy of mine will likely BBQ me over a slow but hot flame for using it.
