Friendships can form at the strangest times in your lives... yet become the life blood you draw strength from each day.
Take the 5 of us... the so named "Tight Five" by fellow photog ... our common link being photography but more than that a now solid foundation of friendship.
One which started around the dinner table at Zachs one evening in January 2013... the conversation being about .... Tripods.... I don't think I've ever laughed as much as I did that night... and since ... And I still pity the poor salesman that has to sell one of us ladies a tripod!
The older I get the more I value the friendships I have. Different friendships fulfil different roles. These ladies have been there during one of the toughest years of my life. Just knowing they were there for me to escape to for a couple hours of photography and laughs has made the year more bearable.
So to the Tight Five - Vanessa, Leigh, Kirsty & Jenny... thank you for the friendship, laughter and photography... here's to many more celebrations ladies :)
And to Vanessa a very happy birthday - may the year ahead be blessed, full of laughs and surprises and joy xx
