Thrown Under the Bus!

Okay for those who have no idea what that means check out the Wikipedia entry.  Honestly I had never heard of the term until I joined the Army.  I have been in my military career a couple of times thrown under the bus by friends....  But never by my husband till today.  GEORGIA GIRL RULE NUMBER 1: When life give you lemons make a Lemon Drop Martini.

That's what I did..

The hubby had volunteered me to photograph a Field Day event.  He told me that they needed an extra pair of hands and if I wouldn't mind coming down for a while.  I agreed and he suggested taking my camera just in case....   I got there and well.....  It wasn't a just in case moment.

Now standing there I was extremely nervous I haven't really taken photos in Iraq.  Nor did I have the equipment to get what I thought would be good pictures.  Shaking off my nervousness I remember lessons that have been drilled in to my head since I started taking photos.

ONE: Never say no to a photograph opportunity,  I did get to try my new telephoto lens which allowed me to get some great shots with out getting in anyones way.
TWO:  Practice makes perfect.  Like anything else you have to practice to get better.

Though I am totally reluctant to show you all the pictures of the kids...  here are some pictures of the BIG ACU Clad Kids
