When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that the plan for the day involved heading out to the hill side to give my boyfriend’s new Daniel Defense Rifle a try. I’m not a huge fan of guns but they seem to make him happy and if it makes him happy then I’m ecstatic. But instead of partaking in pulling the trigger on a firearm I opted instead to be snap happy behind my new telephoto lens. It’s beginner lens, but that’s exactly what I am so I figured there is presently no need to invest the two grand just yet if I’m not quite sure how the thing works anyways.

The last time I went shooting though and shared the experience on my Facebook page, a friend of mine that knows me all too well said he wouldn’t be surprised if I was wearing heels. The thought had crossed my mind, but that time I opted for combat boots and camouflage. Seemed appropriate, right? Well this time around I figured if that’s what people are expecting of me may as well give the crowd what they want! Just because you’re doing a dirty job doesn’t mean you have to look dirty. This isn’t always the case though. There was one time when it didn’t occur to me that going snow boarding meant you had to actually wear snow boarding gear…aka snow proof attire. I totally thought jeans and a Hollister Jacket would suffice. Fortunately for me, the same friend who called me out on wearing heels to go shooting also anticipated I would overlook the fact that snow is water and would not come prepared, thus bringing a second set of snow gear for me. I love that not only do I know my sense of style but that my friends do as well.

Testing out my new telephoto lens! It sure does capture a beautiful sunset.

My boyfriend knows how to shoot a gun but can't for the life of him focus a 50 mm lens. FYI this is NOT a loaded gun, otherwise I would not be holding it like that. Safety first always!
