The SS Red Oak Victory Ship provides a rich venue for my photography during our afternoon in Richmond, California. Just a short drive from Point Richmond.
As soon as I found myself on board I was drawn to using parts of the ship to create frames in my compositions. One afternoon is just enough time to get an overview photographically. I plan to return here and explore more of this ship.
So much to see on board. These are just a few of the rooms I explored. A bit of humor found in the hospital quarters. I tried to imagine what it would be like to cook for the entire crew. The size of the mixer gave me a clue.
New cars unloaded from ships, and heading for auto dealers here in the USA. Cyclists stop by on the dock. A sailboat taking in the tranquility of the afternoon.
Last stop was the Rosie the Riveter Memorial Park. It didn’t look promising for a great sunset, so we headed home.
Anne and I take advantage of the late afternoon sun to show off some height!
A great day for history, fun, and good photography.
