Old man, been taking photos for almost 70 years and still learning.

Chipsthe1's recent activity

  • I also think it looks better
  • Personally I would crop the left side of that photo, very close to the young man's left shoulder. I find the background on that side distracting. Just a suggestion.
  • I have one of the early Canon G10 powershot cameras that I carry all the time. It has taken a beating over the years but still works just fine. And I always shoot raw.
  • I believe the Constitution divides war powers leaving the President  some exclusive rights and Congress some exclusive rights. Such divisions are a common thread in our Constitution and was done ...
  • Police officers, FBI, soldiers, are all trained to shoot body mass, the largest target. When engaged in a potential situation it is very difficult to fire accurately at the head which is why they ...
  • Nice car. Only two comments, both worth exactly what you paid for them. First, and a very minor one, I find the reflections on the floor a bit distracting. Not all that important really but if were ...
  • The removal of the bibles has been reversed http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/08/15/navy-reverses-bible-ban/--
  • Actually the only thing I was trying to point out that the message was not ("possible the Brits as well") because the Brits, and the Canadians as well. were well aware what destruction the bomb ...
  • General LeMay, who headed the Army Air force was a great believer in bombing civilians on the belief that the more they endured the quicker they would beg their leaders to stop the war. His ...
  • My brother was in the Navy in WII. He certainly felt the atomic bombs were warranted and was glad they were used. I also know a number of veterans of that war who were on troop transports ready to ...
  • The Russians were aware that the United States had a new and terrible weapon. They were so informed by Harry Truman before any bomb was dropped. They did not know at the time what the weapon was ...
  • Just noting that Hitler was not elected to office. He did become extremely popular with the German population but they did not vote him into office. Bismark gave him a chance and Hitler grabbed it ...
  • Okay, then explain the Japanese did not surrender after the first bomb? If that did not  convince the Japanese military to surrender why did it take 2 bombs. And even then the Japanese Military ...
  • So then why did the Japanese not surrender after the first bomb was dropped? Mainly because the Japanese High Military Command really wanted to fight, despite knowing they could not win. The ...
  • You do not care what anyone says other than yourself. But the US really did not know if the bomb would work when dropped from a plane. So your suggestion is probably not the best idea. Please do ...
  • A legitimate question. The German people did not elect Adolph Hitler, he was appointed to office by Bismark. Still he was very popular with the German people and, early on, popular in other ...
  • I would appreciate a bit of an explanation of the above. Your conclusion that Japan was already defeated may be correct but the Japanese military had vowed to fight on and were training both the ...
  • Your comment above has absolutely nothing to do with what governmental body voted to pay for the internment of the Japanese during WWII.
  • The Senate, not Reagan, voted compensation to the Japanese interned in WWII.
  • You could debate it but it was not at all certain that the bomb would go off when dropped from a plane. It had been tested on a stationary platform but there was still uncertainty. Further, if ...
