SS Red Oak Victory Ship

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.

Faces follow me!

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.
