    I just read a blog post from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum called Life at Sea: The Thirty-Hour Day. In it, photographer Jim Preston relates the story of his 1981 project to document the daily grind of life on the aircraft carrier USS America for the Navy's monthly magazine All Hands. I found it very interesting and was pleased to see that he included a link to almost 350 of his photos that he had pulled from the archives and posted to an album on NASM's Flickr account.

    Check it out if you have an hour to spare.
