So Much For Daily Digital Images, Right?

Sorry folks, life keeps interrupting my blogging. My sorry excuse for a spine is hurting enough that I just don't feel like getting out and doing anything, much less photographing things. So I just work and then when I get home, I eat supper, maybe watch a TV show with Lovely Wife, and go to bed.

That's pretty much the sum total of my days right now. work, eat, sleep, repeat.

That leaves me with little to choose from as photographs are concerned, and to top it all off, and really, the worst thing is that I DON'T CARE ENOUGH about anything to do it when my back is like this.

The medicines help, but only so much. Many times, when the medicines give me true relief, my body wants to shut down and get some quality sleep while it can, and I cannot make myself go out and do hobbies when the pain is gone. Pretty much between a rock and a hard place.

Anyway...

I haven't any new digital photos that I like enough to put on here, so I'm gonna throw a couple of my old 35mm slides that I have scanned on here for your perusal.



These images are Kodachrome slides of the USS Alabama, moored in Mobile Bay in Mobile, Alabama.

I love this thing, and it has been many years since I toured on it.

The USS Alabama is a WWII era battleship, and touring through it is quite humbling. Seeing how the two thousand men or so were able to live in such tight quarters is astounding.

There are also lots of planes and a submarine there at this park as well. Pretty neat stuff.

War is a hideous thing, but I'm grateful to all the men and women who have and do serve in our armed forces. They keep us safe and free.

I'm so sorry your back is making life so uncomfortable for you. I can't even begin to understand it.
I do love your photos of the ship. Great angles.
Feel better soon and have a Happy Easter.

I've visited the Alabama several times, and it's always amazing.

I hope you get to feeling better soon. Have nice Easter!
