Shucks, It's a Couple Photo

Yes, that's right, it's family pleasing time again, which is why I've put up a picture of Justin and myself. Our cousin Andrea is putting together an album for our grandparents and this is our contribution.

It is, indeed, the only image of us as a couple that exists in our five plus years of marriage, aside from our wedding photos, which are languishing somewhere in a dusty corner. And even then it's rather old, dating back to Christmas Day 2005. I remember the day well — I'd been sick with a mystery digestive illness for 10 months and was limited to a Christmas lunch of bread, cheese and mushrooms. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and food intolerances the next year. And what were two of the problem foods? You guessed it, wheat and dairy. Great lunch!

Anyway, this shot was taken in window light with a tripod and cable release.
