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.

Caps and Grammys

This was given to me by the Grammys in 2006. I was there photographing rehearsals with a specially invited group from Special Olympics Southern California. I was documenting their visit.

One of the most fulfilling times for me was shooting for Special Olympics. I did everything from their John Wooden Dinner with thousands of people to every sport during their Fall and Summer Games. Photographs were used for annual reports, displays, media etc.

During “Shelter In Place” I have been cleaning up my office. I have a lot of caps and t-shirts from my travels. Many given to me and others I purchase. I will post more, they are fun. Thanks!

This Would Be Better

Doing some more photo shoots poolside would make sheltering in place much better.

Enough Of March

I moved on to April and turned the page. This is April in one of the Pirelli Calendars hanging in my office. About as close as I can get right now to photographing Pirelli style. Sheltering in place.

Submarine Social Distancing

It is a room with a view but social distancing probably would not work. Barely had enough room to shoot a photo (Hasselblad digital camera). Sheltering in place.
