Some of my WWII series
3

These are not new images, sorry.  I haven't been out doing photography.  The weather here has been just horrible since we got back from Ocracoke - extraordinary heat, humidity and deluges.  Summer here is normally not my favorite time of year, but this year is n a class by itself.  At least living up on the mountain we don't have any flooding - would probalby see the Ark going by first.  View of the back deck:

Anyway, to start us off. here are some images I have done in an effort to do period-types WWII shots:

Marine F4F Wildcat pilot returning from a mission over Midway:

German U-Boat officers on leave in Lorient:

Young Flying Tiger pilot with his Curtis P-40 in China:

On the home front:

Highlanders in England just before D-Day:

Japanese pilot with his Kate bomber on Guadalcanal before the invasion:

Russian master sergeant in Kursk:

Luftwaffe ME-109 pilot in North Africa:

US B-24 pilot in Italy with local talent:

I like these, all very "of the time" so well done.  I guess the originals were at re-enactment shows. I mentioned before that a friend locally has several genuine second world war vehicles.  His Sherman is a film star, having appeared in the film Fury.

Shot of my local church, taken with a Sony Cybershot  DSC F-707 in 'Nightshot' mode in daylight, with UV and NM4 filters to get the Full Spectrum false colour effect. It was a blisteringly hot day and I required several edits to get rid of the glare.

Could have sworn that was Estii(?).  Cool dogs, in any event.  My question seeks an answer to this problem.

And, does the solution involve a one hundred pound American PitBull climbing a tree?

Balú rappels also.  Hates baths and rain showers.

Loves fishing, and scuba diving, although I need deeper acequias/irrigation ditch,  to demonstrate, and a scuba outfit.

Love the photos of your puppies, David.  Keep them coming.

FYI; folks. HDR inclined, artistically-minded Sony A7MkIII in vicinity.

Chiaroscuro is not a "dark charro ," no sir.  Chiaroscuro is renaissance art, on steroids.  You'll understand when you see the video.  It has an advertisement.  Hope the onlookers don't mind.

Link .

Bill Borne missed this one as he sped through the Ghost Ranch.  However, he took a really nice panorama, two miles further north.

That tank was in the movie?  Wow?  I saw teh movie and thought it was a bit overdone.

Sherman Tanks were made in a mile-long factory, called Birdsboro Armorcast, built just for that purpose right here in my home town of Birdsboro.  It has now been torn down, but I was able to grab a few shot some years ago of the massive abandoned facility.

That sort of treatment is not to my taste.  Also, the blank sky screams to be filled to my eye.  But that's all probably just me.

Looks surreal, David.  What are the white spots?

Quite a deluge going on in your area.  None in my neighborhood so far today. But some subways have been flooded a few times already this season.  Nice WWII pics like the first and last the most.

Thank you Gordon and that was one of my favourite songs from the show which I saw in London in 1978, just after it had opened.

Thank you David and Eszti is a twelve year old now and although she is still jumping it is not quite that high.  And your Balú in the ditch is priceless.
