Description These were the same guns- in the bunkers that defended Omaha Beach during the invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. A closeup of the barrel shows the rifling detail of this Czechoslovakian made 100 mm artillery piece. This photo is perfect for a veteran, history buff, or anyone that has visited Normandy or has wanted to.
John Daly, Southern California Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement My love for travel coupled with my career as a commercial pilot has afforded me the opportunity to see the beauty of this world in both place and people.
My wife and I have always loved traveling and immersing ourselves in a location that often was very different from the world we lived in day-to-day. We liked the sense of being transported away from our everyday lives and learning as much as we could while we were there. We might have packed different things in our luggage based upon where we were going, but the one thing that always made the trip was our camera. It was the one piece of valuable equipment that would capture the moment. It was the means to reconnect with that place in time forever.
I believe that life creates the purest and most beautiful form of art. It is my goal to capture these moments and share them with others. As you look through my artwork, please note that none of these photos were posed nor manipulated.
What you see is exactly what I saw at that moment.
