Probably just trying to center her up. He couldn't see the LSO very well.
"Smoke billows up from the Kowloon Docks and railroad yards after a surprise bombing attack on Hong Kong harbor by the U.S. Army 14th Air Force October 16, 1944. A Japanese fighter plane (left center) turns in a climb to attack the bombers. Between the Royal Navy yard, left, enemy vessels spout flames, and just outside the boat basin, foreground, another ship has been hit."
Star Ferry a-shitin' and a-gettin'.
9 out of 10 American GIs never saw the enemy. They kept the beans, bullets, and black oil coming for the line doggies.
"U.S. invasion forces establish a beachhead on Okinawa island, about 350 miles from the Japanese mainland, on April 13. 1945. Pouring out war supplies and military equipment, the landing crafts fill the sea to the horizon, in the distance, battleships of the U.S. fleet."
This has got to be one of the most iconic pictures I've ever seen of WW2. And I'm pretty sure I've seen several thousand.
It’s easy to get caught up in the foreground...the impact really happens when you look at the background...
Exactly CAC . When you take in the entire scene the logistics of what you see is phenomenal.

Won my bet, still alive. Boss Lady has to pay up.

You know you've had a bad year when the universe is flipping you the bird.
That's not "the bird"...it's a "thumbs up"
So, in 2021 the Vogons will destroy the Earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass? So long and thanks for all the fish.
From the article:
"This small clump of material is part of a much larger cloud complex called the Carina Nebula, and under normal circumstances would not be given a nickname of its own. But its distinctive shape has led scientists to nickname it the Defiant Finger.
And that's exactly what it looks like - the age-old obscene gesture of "go do ghastly things to yourself", and "go away, but in much ruder words"."
It’s that or their poetry...!
This looks to me like a Flamingo staring into the Sun.
Ice Hockey: 2021 World Junior championship quarter final Finland-Sweden. We were losing 2-0 to Sweden and then we came back and scored the winning goal 3-2 just 30 seconds before the end. Our beloved "enemy" Sweden usually does this to us. Our turn....
Bet you never guessed. My father was 0 38 cal Finnish champion and my mother 0.22 cal Finnish champion. I shot both guns between ages 12-17 years several days a week but was not good enough so concentrated on other things.
The best gun I have used so far was in the Army 12.7 mm Russian AA MG down the beach. Lovely gun. Kph
