Battleship Texas 2


Another POV shot from the Battleship Texas this past weekend.

If you not already planning on attending the Armand Bayou event this weekend there will also be a great photo op here at the San Jacinto Day Festival this Saturday. The event is from 10:00 to 6:00 with the battle recreation scheduled for 3:00 PM. I went last year for the first time and there are certainly plenty of photo ops.

Of course I think it will also be "Earth Day." During the "International Lights Out Event" a couple of weeks ago, I took advantage of the extra power available, from my nieghbors voluntary blackout, to really light my place up! I'm thinking that, in honor of "Earth Day", I may stay home and burn a stack of old tires I've been collecting - kind of a redneck fireworks display! Of course I'll be wearing a life jacket - in case the polar ice caps melt. Good times.

I like the perspective you have taken. It is interesting artistically, but more importantly, it ties two historical icons of Texas together in one shot. And everyone knows that is a good thing!

Another unique perspective of the Battleship Texas!

I think a crop removing the black triangle from the left and some of the sky would improve it. The "bones" of the shot would still be there!

Cheers!

Thanks Larry, Barry, and Shirley.

Barry - I thought about the weight of the dark triangle you referenced, but in the end decided it helped with POV. Maybe a bit too much of a good thing!
