Lunar Eclipse

There was a full lunar eclipse tonight. I missed most of it because I was out with my sister but managed to get these shots of the other end of it. I love my camera and tripod!
My maternity leave is drawing to a close. I go back to work full time as of Monday. Rob is on vacation next week to help me get adjusted to working nights again, and to let the boys get adjusted to me not being here for bed time. Well, let's face it, it will be more traumatic for me than for them I'm sure. I am in training for the next 4 weeks at work so it will be an easy adjustment back there. I will be working 4:30 PM to 1:00 AM, which is going to really suck for the first couple of mornings getting up. The great thing is that the week that Rob goes back tow ork and I have the boys by myself Colby will be on March break so I don't have to get up and drive him to school. The boys will be spending 2 days a week in Timberlea with Nicole, 1 afternoon /evening a week with Kassie, and 2 days with Mom and Dad. It's a bit of travelling for me with them, but at least I know they are safe and being cared for.
In anticipation of going back to work, I went to get my hair trimmed today. Being on maternity leave made me very relaxed with my hair, opting to just throw it in a ponytail or a dewrag. I went to see a great hairdresser I know, and after chatting with her, decided to go very different. I also did something I don't ever do. I took my own picture. I read Tawny's blog all the time and she is forever putting pictures of herself on there, so I thought "what the hell". I have been asked by many people who look at OMG Photography if there are any pictures of me on there as they want to see who is behind the camera. I am much more comfortable hiding behind my camera than being in it, and have never really liked pictures that other people have done of me.

Great shot and I understand the point of rather being on the other side of the camera... Good luck going back to work...
