On The Beach Today

I have found a great place to “Shelter In Place” with an ocean view and still travel. Well maybe not. A Soviet Navy B-39 Submarine, the largest conventionally powered submarine ever built. Likely this one stalked U.S. Navy vessels out of San Diego.

From a photo excursion from Palm Springs to San Diego. At the Maritime Museum San Diego. Photographed with my Hasselblad H4D-40 and HC80mm lens.

This submarine and our current times reminds me of the 1959 motion picture “On The Beach” directed by Stanley Kramer. It takes place during the aftermath of a nuclear war. A tremendous motion picture with an all-star cast. However the similarities to today are somewhat discomforting.
