A Man and His Ship

I was doing some wandering around the blogosphere this weekend and found this by John Carmichael, a lover of all things naval aviation, whose father was a captain of U.S.S. MIDWAY. I've completely fallen in love with MIDWAY, and so found his pictures and descriptions of several visits to the ship with his father fascinating. But this picture says it all:
