I went to a Pearl Harbor commemoration Saturday and met a really interesting Gentleman. He was there to give a talk about His experiences on December 7 1941. He kept the crowd enthralled the whole time. I thought I would post his picture as a kind of thanks for His efforts during WW2.

a pretty narrow minded comment indeed... it has nothing to do with the pic. Politics aside here, and this is a JAPANESE camera forum for goodness sake lol

a very honorable looking old man. A pretty snapshotish looking pic.

So you felt it necessary to comment on his comment with another that has nothing to do with the pic? And to do it right after Pearl Harbor Day? Oh, wait... I see you're from the "Left Coast".

Frank, im sorry but not everyone here is a proud American or American to this matter. I felt that politics, and political comments are inappropriate on this forum and my comment was intended to point that out. Just to make sure, i did comment the pic.

I had no idea it was Pearl Harbor Day, and i apologize for possibly hurting peoples patriotic feelings.
Nevertheless my memory often plays tricks on me and the name Pearl Harbor always brings up another: Enola Gay...

Frank, my opinions have nothing to do with my current place of residence. Still dont consider the photo being anything more than a snapshot:)


PS- The irony here is that this is a Japanese camera community.

I agree. However, considering this was not an actual photo shoot where everything is under the photographers control, I'd say he did OK.
PS. Pearl Harbor day is December 7. My British friends all point that out to me. :p
I actually know a Pearl Harbor survivor that I consider to be a friend. I'm going to have to show him this thread. Bill probably knows this guy as there aren't that many of them left. :(

The photo is a snapshot. That isn't a bad word... There isn't intricate lighting, sophisticated posing or an elaborate set for the shoot. He listened to the speech and snapped a shot... 99% of my shots are snapshots, I take photographs primarily for one family. Mine. I don't think there is anything wrong with my snapshots though.

Politics aside, this man was present and dealt with something few alive today have seen and done. WWII survivors that I have met went to war dealt with it in their own way and every one I met has contributed to society in some positive way.

I have the same respect for this man as I would a holocaust survivor or anyone else that was a part of this moment in history. You don't have to be an american to appreciate someone that was at Pearl Harbor the day we were bombed. Same with the men that took the beaches in Normandy. For me it's more than national pride. They did something selflessly for a cause they believed in. I respect that regardless of national origin.

No more politics for me. If you don't like my opinion you can PM me to hear why you are wrong :)

Your connection of the two is reasonable, Misha. If the attack on Pearl Harbor had not occurred there probably would have been no need for the Enola Gay.

I think there never was a need to test the nukes on people. Turned out nicely though! They are selling us their cameras on the cheap! yay...

+2 on Sam's response.

For the OP, nice picture, and thank you for sharing. What a treat it must have been to have someone willing to share their personal experiences? I had the opportunity to go through an original, still flying, B-17 bomber from WWII a couple summers back. It was a real honor and very nostalgic to think of the history of the aircraft and the crews it carried throughout the war.

Every day the number of WWII survivors decreases, and someday in the not to distant future there will be none. What an honor to be present to have any survivor from WWII (regardless of nationality) recount their experiences.
