The main reason why I photograph with a Leica camera:

“I want simplification, not amplification or complication…I just want light controls … because photography is about light.” – Thorsten Overgaard

“A camera that gives me the joy of ownership and the joy of shooting is much more important than one with the highest number of megapixels or highest ISO performance.” – Yukio Uchida

“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.” ― Ansel Adams

“You just have to live and life will give you pictures.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

NAS Pensacola Naval Aviation Museum

One of the reasons we enjoy coming to the NAS Pensacola RV campground is the Naval Aviation Museum that’s here.  Its really an incredible place.  In the main atrium as you can see in the photo below is they have the previous aircraft the Blue Angels flew, the A-4.  This is the aircraft I flew while in the Marine Corps, VMA-311, and the first squadron I flew in when I transferred to the US Navy, VFC-13.  I have over 2,000 hours in the different types of this aircraft and it brings back great memories when we come here to visit.  My wife has taken a picture from this stance each time we’ve come.  The only changes have been the color of my hair and the size of our two boys next to me.
