All Hands to Quarters by seafaringgypsy All Hands to Quarters by seafaringgypsy
Each morning on the flight deck of the USS Enterprise, the air department gathers (we call that a muster in navy speak) for the plan of the day, instructions and the occasional inspection.

If you're wondering about the hard hats as opposed to ball caps or dixie cups, I'll explain.

The ship is currently in the Newport News shipyards so there's a ton of heavy equipment around and things of that nature. So, in the yards we all wear hard hats for safety.

top shot - its a simple composition but the homogeneity (?) of the air crew is what makes this shot - its patterning with humans

An interesting shot, I feel bad for the 5 guys not wearing hardhats. It's intersting to note the similarities and differences in the crowd - aside from the obvious like clothing. Like what each person is doing with their arms. The little details draw me into the picture and I can almost hear the shuffle of feet and the man talkin' his morning talk. Nice.

How inciteful are you???

You're amazing. You really are.

I think this is a pretty accurate take on the daily life of a US Sailor. Every morning, sure as clockwork...
