The USS Little Rock is a 610-foot Cleveland class cruiser launched in 1944, commissioned in 1945 and decommissioned in 1976 and one of 27 U.S. Navy Cleveland-class light cruisers completed during or shortly after World War II. While in service, she was converted to a Little Rock class guided missile cruiser. She is the only remaining Cleveland class cruiser, which was the most numerous of U.S. wartime cruisers. She is on display at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park in Buffalo, New York (the source of this information). For lighthouse lovers, she’s docked about half a block from the Buffalo Main Lighthouse.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Loove this image where was it taken.Also a quick question what type or make of close up lens do you use.

  • Thanks, Sandra! This was taken with my trusty (and very portable) Canon PowerShot G10 (f/4.5, 1/640 and ISO 100). It, and my Kodak EasyShare Z5120, are my go-to cameras when we’re on the road. I keep a dedicated macro lens on my Canon Digital Rebel XTi and don’t use that camera for much of anything else.
