The Beginning

While I’ve only just gotten this site running, it is already 2 months into my deployment. Instead of starting in the present, I feel I must start this like some good books do and purposely go back in time to show how everything started.

Game of Spades in the Flightline shop.

Spent everyday leading up to the departure working. Wouldn’t have it any other way, really; it’s boring sitting in a hotel-esque room with bags packed and nothing to do. I stayed at work in our shop for a little while since we kept hearing our Air Force C-5 transport plane would be delayed, so I shot a picture of a couple of the guys playing Spades. I choose to not include their upper bodies in the picture and shoot in B&W because I felt this is a timeless kind of moment — servicemen passing idle time with card games in-between hard work.
