Photographer's Note

Ancient battleship, USS Texas.
I would like to shear this image I shot 10 years ago with my old 35mm camera.
This Drednaught is the BB35 Battleship Texas. Completed in 1914 it is the only remaining ship in its kind. One of the most known campains it took part in was the operation Overlord i Normandie. USS Texas was apparently the command ship in the campain, and only lost one person, when a large 20cm+- shell drilled through the deck and did'nt explode, but it killed one person in the impact.

A really beautiful ship which deserves a visit if you are going to that region. About 30 minutes drive from Houston.

Visit the BB35 on web.
