Optical Delusion.

This photo may look like a contractor repairing rooftop parking on a downtown San Diego office building — but looks can be deceiving.

Actually, in this photo, Seaman Chelsea Pedarre, U.S. Navy, is driving a deck scrubber on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) berthed at Naval Base San Diego on December 19, 2019.

The photo below shows the aircraft carrier moored pier side at Naval Station North Island in 2016. Big, ain’t it?

Here’s a link to a brief video of the carrier’s return to San Diego in 2018. It gives a sense of the ship’s enormous size and the thousands of people it carries.
