A New Female Shooter

I met a gal half a year ago who happens to be a web designer. Aside from being a great lady who is now my girlfriend, she also shared with me what was a slight interest in aviation.

So I brought her out with the guys one day, and even *gasp* let her take a couple shots with my camera. Great framing from the start, she went home and used her Photoshop talents and edited damned good as well.

I'm excited to say that my girlfriend now has 10 shots in the d/b, all on her own (but with my camera).

I wanted to congratulate her publicly, and share a shot or two of hers with you guys.

I'm really proud of her, and I'm also a very lucky guy.

She's also behind me and annoying the shit out of me, too, but oh well. I'm glad I've brought another female into the hobby.

Congrats to you Phil and Melanie! There aren't that many girls like her I suppose.

Melanie,

Great looking shots! Welcome to A.Net...I'm sure Phil is a great guy to learn from...just don't ever accompany him to any Del Taco establishment in the LAX area...

Cheers,

I think she's pretty frustrated that she doesn't have a forum account to defend herself here. haha

There is no better way to live its enthusiasm for aviation !!! Your babies will certainly become pilots and at least oneof them will be born when spotting in a runway end  Wink

Best love wishes for you  Wink

Hey Phil,

please congratulate Mel for me on her great shots since she doesn't have her own forum account yet (well, looking at Ian's comment, maybe that's a good thing, haha). You two take it easy now and hopefully I'll manage to get my lazy ass up to NYC sometime this summer to see you all again.  wave

Never tell your girlfriend about all the 'action' you're getting at the airport - only photogs understand that.

That is great indeed Phil.. Congrats to Mel  Smile

I am pretty lucky too, in that my wife also loves to hang out with us spotters and enjoy the hobby with me. She won't come close to the camera, but I always say you can start spotting with the 300D and we can just get another camera. Cough, Cough 30D  biggrin
