This is one of my favorite photos from Hawaii. Yes, I say that with almost every photo. I can’t help it!
Why does this one look weird? Well, when we were in Kauai, we were fortunate to have a blazingly bright full moon. We decided to play around with our new camera on the beach, and we set the exposure really long and used the moonlight to take our photo.
I haven’t edited this photo at all. This is the power of a fancy camera, creativity, and moonlight.
I love how the waves appear to wash right through us, softened and morphed together as time goes on. Little movements we made while standing still for so long appear blurry and soft.
When I saw this photo, it reminded me of our relationship. For almost 14 years, we’ve stood by each other as waves have crashed around us, sometimes soothing, sometimes exhilarating, sometimes frightening, always exciting. Time has softened it all. Little movements we’ve made together or separate appear blurry now, but when held long enough, our image is strong.
Today, 10 years ago, we made this bond public and official.
Here’s to many more years of magic and moonlight, softness and strength, love and excitement.
I love you, babe.
