Last weekend my sister Janet and her husband David came to Utah and stayed with me for a couple nights. Dave was in town for drill, he is a chaplain in the Utah National Guard. Janet came along this time because there was a formal dinner held for their unit at the capital building.
They asked if I wanted to go. I thought it would be fun, I've never been to a formal dinner before. So sure, I wanted to go.
I was to bring my camera along and just sort of document the evening for those who wouldn't be there. Super nervous about it. I don't have much experience documenting events. But, this would be a no-expectations situation that I would be able to get some practice. So sure, I'll do it.
In the end, I was very honored to be at the event. I had never been inside the capital building. What a beautiful place! I felt inspired being there with these soldiers and their families who have made such sacrifices. I felt so honored to be in their company.
So, the pictures are not the best that I've ever taken. But it was huge for experience and learning. So glad I did it. There is a photo album in the right sidebar if you are interested.
And now I have a wish list of photo equipment to do better the next time the situation comes up.
