Big Boy 4014
Big Boy #4014 thrilled America last year with a tour through the states reminding us all of the might of American Industry. What an awesome display it was, and oh man, that deep throated whistle.

A Livermore 4th of July
We are a small city here in California's San Francisco East Bay Community, but we love our country and we love to show it. BOOM!

San Diego Harbor #2
VDHA #53 to #248: Our second day of the reunion was spent on a tour boat. These were three incredible hours traveling from one end of the harbor to the other. The US navy was the principle subject but San Diego's skyline and Balboa Park played a great second fiddle.

San Diego Harbor #1
VDHA #1 to #52 In October of 2018, we took a trip to San Diego for the Vietnam Dog Handlers Association (VDHA) reunion. Before the festivities started, I took an early morning stroll along the waterfront. This place, San Diego, has everything; from good weather to good food to gloriously gorgeous scenes. A cameraman's delight. PS: Don't ask me about the RV, folks. I really just don't know. 😉

This was a family outing. Here was a neat little display to delight the old and young train buff.

A Ferry view of the Bay
San Francisco is a great photo op no matter the perspective. This one is from a Tour boat ride through the bay leaving from Iconic Pier 39 on a Blue and Gold Fleet Ferry boat.

A bit of Old Sacramento
I took some Photography courses at Mike's Camera in Sacramento. After the class on Exposure we took a walk through part of Old Sacramento to practice what we had learned. I like Street Photography, old Architecture, and Retro too. I just don't get to do much of it. NOTE: Mike's Camera was looted last night, 5/31.2020. Another small business senselessly destroyed.

San Francisco hosts the Blue Angels
In October 2108 I traveled to Yerba Buena Island on San Francisco Bay to capture the Blue Angels during their practice runs the day before the show. To say it was a spectacular day would be an understatement. WOW!
