Long time no sea!

Haha...because...you know...I've been out at sea this whole time? :D?

Oy anyways. Not much has happened since the last journal. Got married. Deployed to the middle east...husband also deployed to the middle east, I'm spending the rest of the year on this broken carrier, life is great!

SO! Anyways, in the last several years, I've drawn less and less (less time and inspiration; military kills your soul btw), however I have picked up photography. It is after all my current occupation!

Woo, so, due to the incredibly poor, poor internet out there in the desert and the hottest most depressing body of water on the planet (sorry guys, 158 degrees? No thanks), I have not be able to get much internet if at all, and any bandwidth I had went to staying in touch with family.

But I've been back stateside for a bit...work has just been incredibly taxing and I've spent, no kidding the better part of three years well...at sea.

So, in addition to taking back sketching, I will post some of my better photos I took on deployment periodically as well as photos I've captured with my own camera. I personally own a D610, but work with a D800 for my ship (photo and video work). Most photos taken during OIR (Operation Inherent Resolve) were shot with a D3s (better gear for most high visibility operations ya feel).

All photos taken with U.S. Navy equipment will be labeled as such, and are free for use as I do not own the rights, the U.S. Government does. My own photos will likewise be labeled, and not so much free for use, not that they're that good anyways.

But, it's time for me to go, and send my daily email to my husband for theee....almost 17th month in a row. I guess they say good things come to those who wait.

Looking forward to getting in touch with this place and fellow Deviants again. Been a long, long time.

AE-VanNuys's Profile Picture
AE-VanNuys
Anna Van Nuys
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
Celebrating life one day at a time...and fully beginning to appreciate the things I once took for granted. Leading myself to a bright future full of unknowns, and I'm finally ready to take the leaps and risks I was once afraid of. I keep an open mind and try every day to keep an open heart. I've been drawing since 2007, and coming off a break, I'm ready to unleash my creativity once again.

I am a photojournalist for the U.S. Navy, and the requirements for my job include graphic design, photography, journalism, and videography.

I distinctly remember taking this photo near the end of the deployment. Taylor, a friend I made along the way, caught my eye sitting at the back of a station during a replenishment at sea. We did these so called "ras's" every week, and after nine months, it became a boring and tedious task for the Sailors. I was just about to head inside after we were connected and fueling with the other ship, and as I turned around and saw Taylor she seemed better than she had in recent months, and laughed embarrassingly at me because she was 'hot and sweaty', and her 'makeup was melting off' as she put it.

The official caption reads:

"Seaman Taylor Leverty, from St. Paul, Minn., communicates with the Military Sealift Command fast combat support ship USNS Arctic (T-AOE 8) during a replenishment-at-sea aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71). Theodore Roosevelt is deployed in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations supporting Operation Inherent Resolve, strike operations in Iraq and Syria as directed, maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the region."
