Philadelphia Navy Yard
Lens: Sigma 35 1.4 Art Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Philadelphia PA 
Posted By: KiloHotelphoto, 07-30-2016, 12:41 PM

Rented the Sigma 35 1.4 Art for a week and made a stop at the Philadelphia Navy Yard to photograph the Marine Corps Barracks, it's the oldest in the US and took some shots of the old fleet while I was there.

The carrier is the USS John F. Kennedy I'm not sure about the other ships.

Interesting shots.

I think it's quite sad to see such ships in this "mothballed" sort of condition.

I wonder where does the predominately pink colours come form on grey ships?

I've always wondered why they turn pink also. Their was another ship there that was almost completely pink. I thought the JFK was decommissioned in the early 90's but I looked it up and it was in 2007, it's been a ruff 9 years.

I wonder if it was a pink undercoat... so you could clearly see when the grey had been applied correctly.

Or perhaps it was like our military vehicles (BS381c 380 Camouflage Desert Sand colour), Pinked Up with some Red Oxide. Vehicles painted this way earned the nickname Pink Panther, specifically created to give extra camouflage in desert conditions, particularly just after sunrise and just before sunset.
