“There is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one’s self, the very meaning of one’s soul.”  Edith Wharton

My “bestie” and I headed off this morning to do some “shooting” out at a local Regional Park.  I’ve never ventured out there before, and was curious.  There’s a big reservoir that is apparently quite busy in the summer with swimmers and boaters.  We saw quite a few fisherman today . . . one with a good catch.  

It was a very gorgeous day, though a bit on the cool side especially in the shade.  Regardless, we enjoyed the relaxed morning just hanging out together taking pictures of whatever took our fancy.  I set up this shot where we were actually standing in the crook of a tree that is just off the bank with the lake in the background.  I rested my camera on a picnic table that was just a few feet away, and set the timer to shoot off 3 photos.  I’m not really happy with my hair in this, and I didn’t like the color in the original, so I used Nik Silver Efex Pro to convert to B&W.  

And . . . I just like hanging out with this guy.



“I told you. You don’t love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song only your heart can understand.”  L.J. Smith

I pass by this framed poem that is hanging on the wall in the hallway by my bedroom – several times a day.  I absolutely love the message here . . . and try to be like this in my relationship with my husband – who is my best friend – every moment of every day.  Of course I’m far from perfect, and so is he.  But . . . we love each other unconditionally and know we are safe in each other’s hearts no matter what.  

I guess I never really understood what “best friend” meant until I met him.
