The USS Roosevelt (CVN 71) Arrives in Bremerton

Today the USS Theodore Roosevelt, or CVN 71, arrived in Bremerton for a dry dock overhaul (Read more here). I tried my hand at getting Seattle in the background, but I am favoring the shots of this massive ship just as it was arriving at the ship yard. The deck was full of sailors, shipyard workers, contractors, and the cars of the sailors moving to the Bremerton area. The Lady Washington tall ship has been in Port Orchard recently, and stuck around for a brilliant demonstration of old and new technology. It was a beautiful evening to experience the ship pulling into port.

Wings and Wheels 2021

A Gig Harbor Air Show

This year’s Wings and Wheels was minus the wheels. This year only featured a drive-in air show due to COVID, but it was quite the experience! It was way cool to hear and feel the rumble of the engines, especially the F-35 closing out the show!

USS Nimitz (CVN 68) Homecoming 2021

USS Nimitz (CVN 68) Homecoming 2021

Welcome home USS Nimitz

Today the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) returned home to Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton following an 11-month deployment. The weather forecast called for rain all weekend, but just in time the rain paused and the sun shone bright as the ship turned into the Rich Passage. The anticipation of such a homecoming is palpable and I’m so happy to see these sailors finally getting home to their loved ones.

And as the USS Nimitz makes for a unique image, I have arranged some specialty-sized prints through my store here.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help or design. My email is [email protected]. It is important to me that moments like this are remembered.

This past winter I was honored to have one of my homecoming photos featured in The 5 Star News, the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) Association Newsletter. My photo of the carrier taken in December with the Olympic mountains in the background was on the front page of their article highlighting the achievements of their latest deployment:

“This deployment tested the 42-year-old Nimitz,
which is the oldest active service nuclear powered
aircraft carrier in the fleet.

In the gulf, the strike group operated in
extremely hot conditions, where the heat index
often exceeded 150 degrees and the seawater
temperature hovered around 100 degrees.”

The 5 Star News in it’s entirety can be read over at the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) Association website.

The oldest carrier in the fleet, the USS Nimitz, came home to the Puget Sound today following a six-month deployment.

Back in June, we watched the ship leave on a more cloudy day. You can see those photos here: USS Nimitz departs for deployment
It was great to see the fog burn away in time to see the Nimitz return safely home.
