Woman Groped by Astronaut at Musuem: Astronaut Says “It Wasn’t Me!”
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.
