Osprey are pretty easy to photograph because they are curious birds. If I'm near water and one is in the vicinity I can usually count on it coming to investigate me. So as it soars above my head it becomes much easier for me to get a couple pictures as its close and slow.

Surprise Docking

10/20/2021: This ship made an unscheduled stop in Key West to have a sick passenger taken off. As there were no line handlers the ship had to hold itself against the pier using its very powerful side thrusters as it could not be tied. Passenger was removed, ship spun 180 degrees and slipped out of the harbor towards the shipping channel and on to its next scheduled port.

Wait for the green flag

This is the pace lap before the race begins. Blue boat holds the yellow flag while maintaining a certain speed. When the boats are lined up a green flag will be raised and the racers will rapidly accelerate towards open ocean racing. This particular class of boats will go 100-150mph over a 5 mile course for 12-15 laps.

Flying & Fireworks

Each July brings the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Assn) show to Oshkosh WI making it the busiest airport in the US for 10 days. Two nights they have a second show after dark featuring stunt planes and fireworks for 3 hours. These night photos make for some of the most surprising photos I've ever taken. This photo shows ground fireworks while a plane, shooting its own fireworks, performs a double loop over the top.

Oh Say Can You See

During the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key penned these words as he looked for the American flag the morning after a huge, strategic battle. If he were to see Old Glory still flying like it had been the evening before, then he would know that the American troops had been victorious. And he was not disappointed. In his joy, he wrote the words of what would become our national anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Harry Miller 1875-1943

His engines dominated American oval-track racing for almost half a century. Most of the speed records which there were to be had on land and water were held at one time or another by those engines. He created the school of American thoroughbred engine design, which was faithfully followed by those who sought to outdo him. He was the originator, in the United States, of the racing car as an art object. He had a passion for metalwork and machinery that soared above and beyond all practical consideration.

Nose Art

Nose art is a decorative painting or design on the fuselage of an aircraft, usually on the front fuselage. While begun for practical reasons of identifying friendly units, the practice evolved to express the individuality often constrained by the uniformity of the military, to evoke memories of home and peacetime life, and as a kind of psychological protection against the stresses of war and the probability of death.

I took a ride

Man in green shirt owned the car and when I took the photo he asked if I wanted a ride around Havana. We climbed in with him in the back seat and other fellow drove. He explained he'd lost his license due to drunk driving so his friend drove. Car was beautiful but only ran and stayed together with car love.

B-29 Superfortress

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress is an American four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber designed by Boeing and flown primarily by the United States during World War II and the Korean War. Named in allusion to its predecessor, the B-17 Flying Fortress, the Superfortress was designed for high-altitude strategic bombing but also excelled in low-altitude night incendiary bombing and in dropping naval mines to blockade Japan. B-29s also dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and became the only aircraft that has ever used nuclear weapons in combat. Only 2 remain flying today, Wifi and Doc. I took this photo of Fifi's engine at the EAA airshow in Oshkosh WI.
