THE FIRST OF FOREVER...

first steps as man & wife

Another Friday and another picture for my blog; I have to say that my photography Friday afternoons are not quite working out the way I had intended; the past 2 Fridays have seen rain and my sweet E420 has seen its black little case. The force of nature (i.e. rain) compels me to dig into the pictures from days gone by – I have quite a stack of them.

The one I posted above is the first step that my close friend took with her husband right after they tied the knot. I find the picture very over-whelming. It’s just a step I know; but there is so much significance to it – it is the first of many steps that you and your life partner will take together. You may have taken many steps together before but not tied together as one. It may not be the best picture I have taken; but its significance far outweighs the photograph. If you look carefully, the picture is tilted - I actually like the fact that it is not all straight - kinda like life :)

i love this pic - its a really well taken one...i wish i had one like this from our wedding - we do have the hands, i think the photographer has one of the first steps together as "man and wife" - its so so special, except that after 6 hours of rituals, our brains were a little fried;) lol!

i wonder why you have been thinking of "first of forever":d

nice blog btw:)

Nice blog you got here. It would be great to read a bit more about that topic. The only thing I would like to see here is a photo of any device.
