Super Cobra

The GRC race was on Marine Corps Air Station New River and was not only open to the public but it was also free. This is the second year in a row that Redbull has one this. Thanks Redbull!

Throw back Thursday

My favorite video of Oshie. I still can’t believe the way he was crying when he saw her.

Day 24: Kinston

I still have a few photos left from our trip to the BBQ festival last weekend so I decided I should bore everyone with more photos from Kinston.

Kinston-10

Kinston-9

A museum for the CSS Neuse, a Confederate ship from the civil war, was allowing people in for free. Of course we had to check it out. Apparently the Confederates scuttled it because they didn’t want the Union Army to get their hands on it after they lost the city. It never traveled more than a mile from where it was built. They set it on fire in the Neuse River and that is where it remained for almost a century. In the 60’s it was found and the recovery process began. Eventually 15,000 artifacts were recovered.

All that remained was the bottom.

Kinston-6

Kinston-7

I was surprised that the wood looked as good as it did after being underwater for almost 100 years.

Kinston-3
This is what the top half would have looked like.

And the final image is just a candid shot of an artist at the festival working with a piece of wood.

Kinston-8

As always, thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Day 22: The Bell Cobra

They were flying all over the place on Friday. I don’t see them as often as I do the other Helos so it was nice to get the chance to photograph them. The lighting wasn’t the best thanks to the cloud coverage but the pilots were flying nice and low which made up for the poor conditions.

I was able to get plenty of shots it I still need to cull them and process the keepers. Eventually I will post the keepers. Thanks for stopping by.

Day 1 Post #2 Marine Corps!

I have been meaning to share these photos on the blog for a little while now. I was fortunate enough to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and Drum and Bugle Corps perform last month here in NC. Here are a  few shots I took that came out pretty sweet if you ask me.
