Sunday

Concentration

“It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.” ~Paul Strand

As many of you know - I don't do "People Pictures" very well. But sometimes I get lucky. This was one of the shots from the Beret Ceremony last weekend at Fort Benning, GA where my son is at OSUT Training - which combines Basic and AIT together. After this training he goes to Airborne school. I am a very proud Mama Bear!

As a fellow person who doesn't do "people picture" photos that much, I can understand the surprise at having them turn out well. However, I am not as surprised as you are, my friend.

You have every right to be proud. Rock on, girl.

And who said you didn't do people pictures well? Just tell them to talk to me and I'll set them straight!
