DescriptionTexas A&M Maritime Academy - Galveston TexasThis current training ship is the third training ship in the Academys 44 year history. The ship made her Maiden Voyage to Galveston in June 2005. The USNS Sirius was recently decommissioned as one of three combat stores ships that performed underway replenishments for the United States Navy all over the world and most recently in the Persian Gulf.The ship was originally built in Great Britain as a Royal Navy replenishment ship, and later acquired by the U.S. Navy due to increased logistic demands created by maintaining two carrier battle groups in the Indian Ocean during the Iranian hostage crisis.The ship is 524 long and is considerably larger than her two predecessors at the Academy. She has a top speed of 20 knots.
John Hark, Houston Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I currently shoot with a Nikon D300 and have been into photography for over 20 years. I started out playing around with my Dad's old Chinon SLR and then a Canon AE1 Program, and finally a Canon EOS, before making the change to digital with the Nikon. Going digital has allowed me to start sharing my work a lot more and so I hope you enjoy it. Only the shots I feel are my best will be listed for sale, rather than uploading everything I shoot.
I travel quite a bit (domestic and international) for my job in the logistics industry and take a camera along with me most of the time.
Thanks for stopping by to look at my photos! Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them.
Thanks also to Imagekind for creating such an awesome sight to share our work.
