The USS Midway
This shot was taken after we departed from “The Kiss Off” shoot to which we were invited to by a renowned local Photographer. You may recall previous posts, lots of “hoopla” and Media coverage. After taking care of Business, we strolled back to the USS Midway Museum parking lot and had to capture the immensity of this Aircraft Carrier. We decided that a three exposure High Dynamic Range (HDR) shot would help to highlight the details of this City on Water – Black and White also gives a hint of History. What do you think?
USS Midway (CVB/CVA/CV-41) was an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy, the lead ship of her class, and the first to be commissioned after the end of World War II. Active in the Vietnam War and in Operation Desert Storm, she is currently a museum ship at the USS Midway museum in San Diego, California.
She is the only remaining US aircraft carrier of the World War II era that is not an Essex Class carrier. When she was completed in 1945, she was the first US warship that was unable to utilize the Panama Canal due to her size! This is certainly something you all need to go see when you come to Sunny San Diego!
