A Lone Sailor And His Ship

Original Photo By Bradley Alan

This Shot Was Taken Off The Coast Of PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA.

The Lone Sailor Stares Back At His Ship (The U.S.S. ABRAHAM LINCOLN) From A Liberty Boat.

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy This One.

It’s A Photo That Was Purely Happenstance.

Guess I Got Lucky With It, Eh?!?!

In The Hangar: Part 4: A Personal Favorite Hangar Photo

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

This Photo Shows An F-18 HORNET Being Pushed Into Position As It’s Taken Up From The Hangar Deck On The Hangar Elevator Up To The Flight Deck.

It Was Taken In Such A Way As To Illustrate Just How Massive The Hangar Deck, And Therefore The Ship, Actually Is.

It’s Freakin’ HUGE, My Peeps.

Fo Sho FO SHO!!!

Just Thought Y’all Might Like These Two.

Ya Know…

…Since They Show-Off A Couple Of The Other Aircraft We Carried Along With Us.

The Top Aircraft Was What Was Used To Ferry Passengers, Equipment, And…

…One Of THE Most Important Things In The Life Of A Military Person…

MAIL.

We’d Wait In Line For However Long It Might Take Just At The Off Chance We’d Receive Something.

MAIL-CALL

…Meant EVERYTHING To Some Of Us, Fo SHO!!!

The Bottom Aircraft (called a Prowler if I remember correctly) Was Used For Radar Jamming Purposes.

Since I Honestly Can’t Remember Exactly I Shall Leave It There And Simply Say…

…I Hope You Like These Two Pics.

I Enjoy Them Very Much So.

In The Hangar: Part 1: Sardines

Packed In Like Sardines, Aren’t They.

That’s How You Travel Aboard A Ship Like The U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln.

With Over 5,000 People On-Board When The Air-Wing Is Tagging Along…

…Space Is VERY Limited.

As I Said…

…Sardines…

…Alllll The Way!!!

An Aircraft Carrier And Some Stormy Weather

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

This Was Just A Cool Shot I Was Lucky To Get.

A Storm Was Brewing While We Were Anchored Off The Coast Of TASMANIA.

I Took This One From The Back Of A “Liberty-Boat” While Trying Not To Puke From All The Sloshing About.

πŸ˜‰

I Just Like This Shot.

Hope Y’all Do, Also.

The Coffee Cup Of A VERY Hard-Workin’-Man!

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

I Know, Right!!!

Nastiest Coffee Cup EVER!!!

How The Man Drank From It Without Getting A Terrible Infection/Disease I’ll Never Know.

Dude LOVED His Coffee, Though.

Just Like Me.

Just Like A LOT Of Y’all.

Only I Wash My Cup When The Coffee Period Is Over!!!

I Don’t Know If The Cup Pictured Was EVER Washed, To Be Honest.

Now THAT Is A MAN’s Cup, FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰

Helluva Way To Begin The Day, Eh?!?

AGREED INDEED!!!

A Lone Photo From The Navy Days That I’ve Always Liked.

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

This One Is A Shot Of An F-18 Hornet…

…With The Pilot Standing Idly By…

…As We Float Past A Foreign Coastline.

I’m Unsure If You’ve Noticed Or Not…

…But I’m LOVING The Fact I’m Finally Getting To Show Off These Pics.

Trust Me, It Makes Me Feel Gratified…

…And MUCH Better.

*** *** ***

Well, My Peeps…

…I Should Try Sleeping Again.

Not Havin’ Much Luck, Tonight…

…Hence My Working At Just Shy Of 2’a.m.

Okie The Dokie, Kiddies…

…Hope You’re ALL Sleeping Well Enough To Call It Acceptable.

I’m Hoping It’s MY Turn, Next!!!
