Washington D.C.:

Today in Washington DC, a woman (my mother) was allegedly groped by a thrill seeking astronaut.  The  astronaut denied all accusations of wrong doing…Just kidding!

What an awesome shot!  I just love the expression on my mothers face.  My parents were here visiting us for a week this past July.  We decided to take a trip to DC for the day to visit a few museums in the Smithsonian complex.  This shot was taken at the National Air and Space Museum, located in Washington D.C.   I wanted to travel light, so I only brought my Nikon D200  equipped with a Tokina 11-16mm lens.

This is one of those rare moments when the perfect moment in time is captured.  My mother was just getting scolded for being “too close”  by a gentleman speaking to a small audience.  I didn’t realize what was going on until after I looked at the back of the D200 and looked at the shot .  Once I saw what was captured, I started laughing…hard!

Sometimes the best moments in pictures are taken when you’re not expecting anything more than a mere snapshot.
