Interesting!  There were some focus issues with a few of the lego pictures, but they were fun to look at.  Seeing a WW2 uniform still in wearable condition was definitely the highlight for me, though.

Yeah, there were some of these 'sets' that I could not for the life of me get to focus. Yeah, I actually wore the uniform when I presented this for my grade. People really loved the uniform, and so do I.

When I have focus issues (happens all the time), I take the camera back a few inches, and then go back in. If it still doesn't work, try different angles and see if it gets back in focus.

 

I agree with Lord_Capulet. Seeing the WWII uniform was the highlight.

I'll have to attempt those solutions next time I have focus issues.

Yeah, I really love the WWII uniform as well. Time for an update, instead of LEGO WWII, my grandfather, and his uniform. Today is dog/puppy day. Prepare yourself for adorable Filipino puppies.

Here's that 'selfie'. That is I, Neyo Wargear, wearing my grandfather's WWII dress uniform. He was 5'10", and so am I. He was 9th Infantry Division, 60th Infantry Regiment, Anti-Tank Company when he joined. His last organization was the 68th Armored Infantry Battalion, Company A. I can find no info whatsoever on Co A 68th AiB, it's as if they never existed...

 After a bit of googling I was able to find a bit about the 68th AIB, it did in fact exist. Here it is listed on wikipedia under Light Divison, and here's a company photo of HHC. I can't find much, but there were so many different battalions and companies during WW2 its hard to keep track of their less than stellar records. I found out they were part of the 14th Armored Divison, I'd recommend looking into that more.

My Grandfather was an Ammo Sergeant for a howitzer with Alpha Battery 494th Armored Forward Artillery (12th Armored Divison) and through some direct searching of his name with terms like "Name+12th armored division" "name+494th AFA" etc, I was able to find some records that had been uploaded, but my best progress was made by finding a 12th Armored Divison facebook page and forums. (turns out the 12th Armored had a newsletter and all the issues had been scanned and uploaded, my grandfathers name was mentioned a few times)

Best of luck with finding more info about your grandpa, hopefully I helped and if not, feel free to message me, I loved learning more about my Grandpa.

That was very much helpful. This explains why he has a 14th Armored Division patch in one of his suit pockets. Basically, he started in the 9th Infantry and ended in the 14th Armored. In WWII for the US, an armored infantry battalion was a bunch of infantry fully equipped with M2 and M3 halftracks. Considering he was a maintainer and driver of a halftrack. Along with towing the very AT gun he spotted for, it makes a lot of sense he was armored infantry. You've been most helpful Trik Toral, I thank you. I'll have to photograph more of my grandfather's WWII items.

These are great photos. Some of the dog shots were awesome. Others a little blurry -- but I won't spend much more time with constructive criticism.

 

That sunset at Bear Lake is fantastic. I love the colors against the silhouettes.

 

Happy shooting!

These are fantastic shots! Lovin' the hot colors popping in the photos often framed by darker blues and violets. You have a great eye. That fire on the horizon is probably a favorite of this latest bunch.

 

I have one quirk, but it only has to do with the format of your posts, not the photographic art. Is it possible you can put each photo under a spoiler so it's easier to scroll down? I'm not sure whether it's just my browser, but every time a new photo is downloaded on the page, my screen jumps up and down and it makes it difficult to see the photos until all of them on your topic are downloaded.

 

Again, amazing job! Can't wait to see what you shoot next! You inspire me to broaden the horizon of my own subjects and try out landscapes.

Thank you, having a nice high deck in the back on 5 acres makes landscape shots pretty easy.

Ah, I know how that is. Though, how does one make a spoiler?

Thank you, I should have a lot more in store, was outside for 50 minutes taking photos and I still have quite a cache of older photos.

Oh, that's simple! Just put

[spoiler][/spoiler]

tags around each individual picture. Or all of them. Each set of tags makes a spoiler thingie ^^

Anyway, all of your photos look pretty great! I love the last set, especially: those scenes (not to mention the sunsets/rises/raging fires) are all fantastic ^^
