“Ballistic missile inbound to Hawaii” is not a text alert one gets every day. So when it happened last year I decided I wasn’t going to die sitting around in my apartment. Also I needed lots of baked goods immediately. I grabbed my camera and headed to the coast to watch the missile come in. On the off chance I survived, they would be great shots 🎯 About halfway through my last meal of apple fritters and cinnamon rolls, a follow up alert appeared: “Er, nevermind.” (I’m paraphrasing). But I spent the day photographing the waves anyway — including this shot — and then drove home happy to be alive. And kinda bummed I didn’t get to photograph the beginning of WWIII because imagine how much 💰 I would have gotten for that shot. ⬅️ That is the most American sentence I have ever written. Not sorry.
