Since that day in November, we have been venturing out, weekly, both near and far. We have been out on a freezing cold December evening, standing by the ocean, while the frigid winds blew over us, just so we could practice starbursts. She has since mastered them, I still stink at them. We were out during the “Great Blizzard of 2011”, along with several other snow storms. We’ve gotten up at the crack of dawn, just to get some foggy photos. We have stood out, on the boardwalk, in the pouring rain, all with hopes of capturing a different look of our favorite Ferris wheel. We’ve climbed in snow banks, rolled in freshly fallen snow, stood in ankle deep mud, got drenched to the bone in the rain, slipped and slid on the ice, and one day during a strong wind storm Phriend was nearly blown into the freezing cold bay. But mostly we have had lots of laughs.
I learned I can talk this girl into almost anything. I learned it is much more fun to out in all kinds of nasty weather when a phriend is with you, and hopefully, but not as importantly, I hope I have learned to improve my photographs.
