THEN I went and indulged in a new lens for my camera!! I got a freaking awesome 70-300mm (telephoto) lens. Woo hoo!
And if all that weren't enough, Ryan's engine was a man short today so I got to ride! It doesn't happen very often so I was thrilled. So with new lens in hand and a lot of hope that something exciting would happen, I grabbed the cupcakes and headed down.
The boys and I went grocery shopping, had some coffee, and had just started cooking when they got called to a ripping car fire. Woo hoo! And me with a shiny new lens. It was perfect. The captain seemed really excited to have me taking pictures, and my lens let me stand really far away and still get some good shots. And since Ryan in the 'firefighter' (that's his actual title as opposed to engineer or medic...), he does the work. So lots of great pics of Ryan. Click on this shot to see the slideshow:
Great, huh? It was so exciting, and it was really hard to not embarass him because I was really proud.
I've got another totally exciting day tomorrow too. I love when a weekend of no plans turns into a weekend of so much fun its hard to fit it all in! And I've got 2 weddings in the next week, so I'm excited to see if I can manage to get any good shots there.
So what's everyone else doing this weekend? I can tell you for sure what I'm not doing tonight... I'm not watching Ghost Hunters and then White Noise in a dark house all alone like I did last night. I'd like to actually get some sleep tonight. ;-)
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
