    My husband left on Saturday to start a deployment in Iraq for 10-11 months. I took a bunch of pictures on Friday at our "goodbye", but most of them didn't end up too good because of the horrible lighting at the drill center. I just wanted to share a few. They're not the best pictures technically, but they mean something to me.

    The third one, b+w and backlit, is very nice. Full of emotion. No wonder they mean much to you, sillyphaunt!!! 10-11 months... that is a looooong time! With your little one still so young...
    Thank you for sharing these!!!!!

    I agree, that b&w one is really powerful. I love how the baby is looking right at the camera.

    That is a long time, I can only imagine how scary this is for you. :(

    Again #3 seems the strongest.

    You and your family have taken on the strength of Angels. I know I speak for the whole forum when I say that we are here for you.

    These are all great considering what was going on at the time. I don't think I would have been able to hold a camera straight!

    Hang in there and know that you have people here to help you get through the next year.

    :hug:

    Yeah, we are here! I believe many of use would help out in any way possible if you asked. Thank your husband for me, I'm too broken (physically) to be of any help so I have to rely on people like him.

    OH! Number 3 is amazing!

    #3 is very powerful and emotive ... I like the last one as well!

    I'm sure your family will be in everyone's thoughts ... :hug:

    The b&w photo is very powerful indeed! My thoughts and prayers go with all the brave souls in our military.

    Yes, agreed. Terrible thing to have to go through.



    Gag. Let's not pretend this war means anything other than rich and powerful people finding ways to get more rich, okay? Which sucks for both Iraqis and Americans.
