Come on, who has a party at the bowling alley? The Army does!
Jeff's National Guard Christmas party was at the one on base today and it was FUN
After his unit's party we crashed another one across the parking lot and went roller skating. I don't have many pictures from that one because my battery ran out of juice. Note to self: buy that extra battery on Ebay tonight.
And no, i was not brave enough to get my almost 42 year old hiney on a pair of roller skates today but never say never, i might surprise you with a post of that one day.
There was a fellow photographer (don't i crack you up that i claim to be one of these?) in Jeff's unit and has a mother-load of a camera with a mother-load of a lens that he graciously and voluntarily put on my camera for a few shots for fun. All i can say is...WOWEE...Oh My...a $3K lens does make a difference. Felt like the paparazzi shooting with a lens from Nordstrom and then i had to go back to mine from K-Mart. NOT! But you fellow Momtographers know what i mean. :-)
Hope you don't mind all the photos. Be thankful i didn't post the 250+ i took and i should be thankful for digital cameras so i could delete my umpteen shots of blur.
The first five shots are with the $3K Nordstrom lens and also SOOC, the rest are with
|She really is holding a ball in the photo :-)|
|Come on, these need to worn in public...they are stylin'!|
|Isn't this a cool picture? Can i call it SOOC (straight out of the camera) when all i did was change it to sepia tone and no other editing?|
|Don't you think my girls could pull this off? Maybe start a new trend?|
|Not to worry, as you can see your tax dollars were NOT spent in excess at the Christmas party...|
but it was still decent grub.
|Bella showing Santa her bowling techniques.|
|Oh yah, this is a contender....|
|Is it my turn yet?|
|Grace giving a go at it...not bad considering the camera weighs as much as she does.|
|Hurry up and take your 250th shot and move out of my way!|
