A walk around the Battleship Mikasa

The Battleship Mikasa is moored in cement in the port city of Yokosuka, Japan. At the request of a gentleman from the United Kingdom I went to visit the Mikasa today and took these pictures for him.

Information on the Mikasa can be found here:

There are guns everywhere.

Got a bit of rust here.


A view of the Mikasa park entrance from the after steering bridge.

This is where the officers would dine.

This is where the ship's Captain took care of important business.

The Admiral's pantry.

More visitors.

This is how one loads a gun.

And, then fire's it.

The entrance to the Mikasa (it's not free).

A stern shot!

Thanks for stopping by!

Killing Time - August is so damn hot!

That's it, I'm killing time until the weather gets better. Today I went out and took these pictures and it really sucked! Hot, humid, really humid, hazy... I thought I was going to have a heat stroke. Anyway, I shot a few pictures and then I headed home. For what it's worth, check it out.










Somebody stepped in front of me just as I snapped the picture.










All the best,
Mike

The new Voigtlander 75mm f1.5 Vintage Line VM lens - photos on the street

I picked up the new Voigtlander 75mm f1.5 Vintage Line VM lens and this is my first outing with it.
The lens was mounted on a Sony A7III camera. All pictures were taken around Yokohama. Enjoy!




























Here are some pictures of the Voigtlander 75mm f1.5 Vintage Line VM lens mounted on a R3M camera.








Thanks for stopping by!

Bonus shots! Same 75mm lens!
