Playing around some more with this image, added some film grain and took out a portion of Makai pier. I started with the background photo of Waimanalo on the island of Oahu in Hawaii taken from inside an old World War II pillbox above Makapu'u Beach Park. The photo of the plane was taken at the 2012 Kaneohe Bay Air Show and is of a U.S. Navy SNJ (AT-6). I brought the two photos together in photoshop to produce what you see above.

Another shot with my new lens. :)

An old WWII canon that was used to protect the steel works at Whyalla. It sits on Hummock Hill overlooking the steel works and old ship yards. Whyalla is on Spencer Gulf.

Amstelwijck park, Dordrecht, The Netherlands.

 

This is a rare spot, since nothing has changed here since WWII.

 

The Dutch had built here four pillboxes, and in the first encounter with German paratroopers they did a great job: dozens of Germans were killed and some eighty of them became POW's and where just in time transported to the UK.

 

Later, The Germans made a surprise attack. About 12 Dutch soldiers where killed, and 4 Germans.

 

The battles on the island of Dordrecht where savage: 300 Dutch soldiers where killed, and some 300 Germans too.

 

This spot reminds me of hill 60 in Ieper: grim and eery.

   

Just a couple of figs I whipped up in my spare time. The lighting is terrible, I know and I will be getting some finer brushes for cleaner details but I like how they turned out.

1940's Chevy and bus trailer. These trailers were old car carriers that were converted to transport War Workers.

If you go down to the woods today!

 

There are still some very strange and secret places hid away if you know where to look for them!!

 

One such place is situated deep in the woods near the village of Adel North Leeds. This heavily fortified structure has remained a mystery for many years. Speculation in the village was rife that it was a Second World War air raid shelter. This bunker was actually built by the Leeds Permanent building society to keep their documents safe during world war 2. A heavy steel door guards the main entrance to the lower levels inside.

 

The bunker provided 25,000 cubic feet of storage space on two levels. It was built of reinforced concrete and had a watertight envelope of brick and asphalt. It was essential to bring electricity to the bunker and a road up to the entrance had to be made so vehicles could take deeds to and from the safe. Boxes of deeds began to rust because of condensation and several methods of drying were tried before a cure was found.

The bunker was also used by Leeds Corporation to store many of its historic documents there, including the Charter granted to the city in the 17th century by King Charles II.

Of all the Memorials in Washington DC I think the WWII Memorial is my favorite. I like the fountains and the lighting, and I like the way they incorporated all the states into the design.

One of the many bunkers that line the coastline off of the Marin Headlands, near San Francisco, California.

Here are some WWII figgies for ya'll. I hope you like 'em.

The remains of a water treatment facility at the site of Camp Murphy. The United States Army Signal Corps built this top-secret radar training school in 1942. Not much remains of the 1,000 buildings used to house and train over 6,000 officers and soldiers.

 

The 165mm is just as much fun to shoot as the 105mm. Heavier, of course, but at 5 1/2+ lbs anyway, who's counting a few extra ounces.

Much much thanks to Ehpien for hosting my son and me this afternoon. There is no way we would have gotten around without his help. Ed is a true gentleman and a veteran with kids. He was patient as my son went through a "meltdown" after he dropped his ice treat on the ground... Thanks for being a trooper Ed!

WWII Memorial in Washington, D.C.

... TOY version. These are 2 inches long WWII U.S. M4A1 sherman tanks.

 

Two things that I am fascinated with and both somewhat became hobbies. The first one is not a surprise for most of you… toys!!! The second one is my fascination with WWII. I am fascinated on how such an extraordinary event shaped the world that we lived today… anyway, this shots were my way of combining both passions!

During World War II, my dad sent this valentine to my mom in 1945.

 

My dad was stationed in Italy with the 15th Army Air Force.

An important battlefield in Hong Kong used to defense Japan invasion during WW2, was once heavily bomed by airplane. After the war, there's rumour that soldiers died during the war would patrol at night in the ruins.

An old WWII Observation Post atop a hill on the Marin Headlands. If you look towards the top on the left, you can see the Point Bonita Lighthouse on the point leading to the Golden Gate.

WWII weekend, Jefferson Barracks. St. Louis, Mo. US reenactors returning from the "battle" in an M3 halftrack.

There were a ton of old buildings left on the old airbase in Wendover, and unfortunately, I can't remember what most of them were. Lol
