Mariners’ Museum In Newport News

We dropped our oldest off at college. Then off to a museum and we found the Mariners’ Museum in Newport News. What a find, I could have spent hours there–and I wasn’t the only one with a camera, there was a local camera club doing a museum shoot so there were cameras everywhere!! Parts of […]

Wow! That’s astounding! Guess that fancy camera is why you don’t get big round white circles from the flash, huh?
