Another fun Pre-D photoshoot I did was for my friend Amber. Her soldier left the same night SoldierMan did, so she’s the only friend I have who’s on the same timeline I am. It’s nice to have a buddy, especially a kind of crazy one :)
Luckily, Amber and soldier were really into doing pictures with the tanks around post. One thing that’s really great about Ft. Bliss and El Paso is the topography – depending on the time of year, you have your choice of desert landscape, flowy palm trees or lush green parks. Pretty much all we don’t have is a nice lake or ocean. But sea creatures freak me out, so I don’t miss that.
Anyway, tanks. The Ft. Bliss has some great old tanks on display here and there, so we went on a sort of scavenger hunt and got lots of fun pictures with tanks from all (most?) past wars. I love the history of it and the atmosphere. And tanks are just cool, aren’t they?
Fort Bliss has a lot of cool history around it and I’m glad I got the chance to archive some of it with some of my favorite people. Thanks for letting me be part of your memories!
