Me on the right, almost 2 years ago i think?
It’s the way way back machine!

Way back in February on Flickr.
There’s something about shooting with Jilly that makes the whole process an effort to me. A very pleasing effort, mind you, but an effort nonetheless.
Maybe it’s because we started hanging out through kind of an awkward mutual acquaintance sort of thing that took a while to get the hang of. Maybe it’s because she tends to be spectacularly quick-witted when I least expect it – which in turn throws my wit off-balance. Maybe it’s because she’s a groovy lady I’m grateful to be able to call my friend. It’s juggling between hanging-out and talking the good talk and not losing focus on the picture you want to (try to) take.
It’s a bit like the Bouncing Souls, I guess. Hangin’ out with Jilly is like Kids and Heroes: a friendly reminder of who I am, who I was and who I wanna be.
I’m pretty sure I was going somewhere with this (put in effort, stay sharp, shit like that) but I’m just going to wrap it up here. Sometimes a little gratitude is all there needs to be.
