Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

28 Apr

Every Friday, the fine folk over at The Daily Post issue a weekly photo challenge. This weeks challenge is Together. 

This should be a simple challenge for most of you – find a picture of people or things which are together in your picture. Share a picture that means TOGETHER to you! 

This photo was taken very late one night after a birthday party. Joe and I were cuddling in the hallway of a friend’s house, sleepily sharing space and time. It’s common for us to steal moments of intimacy like this – we tend to do it several times a day. This tactile interaction is essential for both of us, and although society frowns on such open displays of affection, we chose to ignore such dogma.

On this occasion, unknown to us, a friend had picked up a camera and had clicked off a few photos. We fell in love with this photo the instant we saw it. Its become to be our “couples” photo. Joe uses it as his Facebook profile picture, and I had it mounted on a piece of wood for our 5th anniversary last December. To us, its our symbol of us – together.

For my regular readers, the photo on my environmental blog The Environmental Rhi-Source is different from the post here! It’s quite a special story and photo and I hope you will enjoy it.

    Outstanding photo … funny, my husband and I are firm believers in 5 minute hugs in the morning and at night and throughout the day when the feeling suits us. I have always found it a beautiful way to calm ourselves and to take a moment for each other. They turn out to be the best moments of our day. I praise your ritual and commitment. Glad I found you in a ping back.
