The Russian Sub

This Week in Tech

A Personal Sub?

This has been a little dream of mine… I’d love to have my own submarine…  But I want it to be kind of big, roomy, and fancy.  With internet.  I don’t know how you get internet on a sub, but I guess you cloud float up a little satellite buoy or something.  The whole idea sounds very impractical, but also kinda awesome.

Daily Photo – The Russian Sub

There is a longer story around this photo that I caught on video… I’ll wait for that to be released!

But, as you can see, I clearly got onto a Russian sub in the middle of the night.  It was docked right next to the Queen Mary in Long Beach.  As I was walking across its iron surface and hearing the empty echoes below, I could not imagine the sub making it all the way from Russia to this harbor.  That was a long, dark, cramped ride…

    Looks like the Queen Mary is about to go down like the Titanic, but its the wide angle shot that makes it lean over.Love the full moon in the clouds or is that one of your tricks.Nice collectors toys.

    Trey, I love the Queen Mary!  I grew up in Long Beach, and I recall the day it came in to the port.  I was in the back seat of a Cessna 140 flying in circles overhead while photographer Harry Merrick captured the event.  Yeah, I’m old.  🙂

    Hey Trey, just watching your TWiT appearance…also enjoyed Name Of The Wind and George RR Martin, so can highly recommend Steven Erikson’s “Malazan Books Of The Fallen” series, starting with “Gardens Of The Moon”.  Truly epic, and not for the faint-hearted…like Martin, don’t get too attached to characters!

    So do we start addressing you as Captain Nemo sometime in the near future?

  • Great capture of the Queen Mary and the sub.  Sounds like fun, having your own personal sub!!  Wouldn’t be for me though.  I don’t like to go under the water.  Thanks for sharing another great photo, have a good Wednesday!!

  • P. S.  The top of the sub looks like a bottle, lol 😉

  • Hey! Great photos as always, I was just watching a show about the USSR today on History.

    However I was wondering why you don’t offer metal prints on smugmug?

  • Well, THAT is certainly something you don’t see every day.

  • Really like the tones and lens flairs. Also it’s a cool prospective, what lens did you use?
