This view of some of the aft guns in particular made me think of a couple of things. For one, if I were the enemy [even now in modern times] I would not want to see this ship from any angle! And two, like modern war ships, it's hard to imagine the organized chaos that occurs on warship in a fire-fight. One display at the ship said that the Texas engaged in one fire mission for 50 non-stop 24 hour days delivering over two ship loads of munitions on the enemy in Okinawa!
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
