Long time no sea!
Haha...because...you know...I've been out at sea this whole time? ?
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.
