I did not make this entry in time for the contest over at Fort Hood Photographers but this is my photo for this theme.
Patriotic, Red-white-blue, camoflage - it's a love/hate relationship with a lot of military families. You feel so cliche having it around as well as a little ridiculous; I mean, when your soul is already Americana flavored, you don't need to wave your flag all the time. My girlfriend that I'm doing this challenge with, had said this would be an easy one for me... actually, not so much. I looked everywhere for something Red, White, and Blue - not a thing around Fort Hood other than the obvious flags.
So... I lucked out when my very pregnant friend bought this adorable blue and white striped bikini. I had this idea of a pregnant pin-up look and she humors me so we got it done at a girl's day pool party with the help of some bright, red lipstick!
