David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.


One-Year Ago Today — Mexico

Mandatory lifeboat drill aboard the MV World Odyssey. The students, life long learners, faculty, and staff were required to repeat the drill once a month during the 110 day Spring 2016 voyage. Once the drill was completed, we were cleared to depart Encenada for Hilo, Hawaii. Image taken with a Nikon 1 V3 camera and 10-30 mm lens (ISO 200, 10 mm, f/3.5, 1/25 sec).

  1. People are very "very happy", I see. So inconvenient!

    +Yaroslav Bogoslavec Coast Guard requirement. I would rather know how to be safe rather that worry about inconvenience. For many of the students it was the first time they have ever been on a cruise ship.

  3. +David Mathre​ , of course, safety is of high priority. However passengers staring behind have bad observation panorama due to life "cushions". I guess I misunderstood the post to that image. Is lifeboat drill means "rescue training on the sea"? Great image!
