USS Alabama Battleship Park

Over Christmas my dad, brother, and I headed out to the USS Alabama Battleship Park outside of Mobile for a tour.  The USS Alabama (BB-60), a South Dakota-class battleship, was the sixth ship of the United States Navy named after the US state of Alabama. Alabama was commissioned in 1942 and served in World War II in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters.  Also on the grounds is an aviation museum and the USS Drum (SS-228) is a Gato-class submarine of the United States Navy, the first Navy ship named after the drum, any of various types of fish capable of making a drumming sound (per wikipedia).  We spent the morning checking out the ships, taking in a bit of history, and of course taking pictures (in my case) :)

I was armed with my Fuji X100S for the day and all shots are processed with VSCOFilm.

A Bridge Down Yonder on the Chattahoochee

I was up in Atlanta for an Optometry conference this past month and was driving through Mississippi around sunset. I was noticing the sky starting to change colors and new the Georgia border (and subsequent river separating the 2 states) was close by so I quickly glanced at my Maps app to find the town of West Point Georgia with a city park and rail bridge spanning the Chattahoochee River. Of course I set up and the colors dissipated (#ccf) but was able to snag this frame while the sky still had some pink in it!

The Big Tank

One of my bucket list photography items from my trip to Okinawa last year was to attempt a time lapse of the “Big Tank” at the Churaumi Aquarium.  This is by far the BEST aquarium in the world and part of that is attributed to the huge piece of glass that makes up the main tank, which houses 3 whale sharks!

After dropping my wife and baby off at the hotel, I headed back to the aquarium with my 3 year old to do this time lapse.  After I set up, he asked me to pick him up to watch and he promptly fell asleep.  I shot for about an hour holding him and protecting my tripod from getting bumped (there were a few people there).

Make sure you head to Vimeo to watch this in HD as well!

The photos were processed with the new #VSCOFilm5 presets, Music is “Out of the Skies, Under the Earth” by Chris Zabriskie

A Streaky Sunset

I went to a party at a colleague’s house and he lives right on the edge of Big Lagoon State Park and Grand Lagoon in Pensacola.  I didn’t have my camera that night for the sunset, but told him that I would be back soon…  The next day I returned and shot this (among other) frames…

Up in the Air – #docs2Hawaii | Travel

A few weeks back, I headed to Hawaii with a friend from work to catch up on flight hours. We travelled from Pensacola to Jacksonville for a flight that took us to Patrick AFB, Virginia Beach, San Diego, Honolulu, Travis AFB, and back home! We stayed 1 night in San Diego and another in Hawaii. While on the island for 27 hours, we headed down to Waikiki Beach and I met up with some friends from optometry school. The next morning, we hiked up Diamond Head, before heading home.

I travelled light for this trip, only taking my Fuji X100s and a few filters. I have enjoyed this camera, but really fell in love with it on this trip! I am still reluctant to take the plunge to shooting JPG only with this (to speed up my processing time), but I did shoot RAW+JPG for this trip, then proceeded to process every single one of the RAWs in VSCOFILM :)
