Life. In Action.

I was working on a shoot this afternoon and I came across this picture I must’ve taken of Justin. And it makes my heart so happy.

Because I love that although we’ve literally just jumped out of the car, he’s already shooting. That he grabbed his camera up so fast that his shirt tail is still flying through the air. I love his busted up, ghetto camera strap that he got his first year of college and refuses to replace. I love how weird it is that he shoots with his middle finger and I love that my eye always goes right to his wedding band.

But most of all I love, that even though I can’t see it…I know without a doubt that he’s smiling behind that camera.

This is what our life in action looks like.

    i <3 justin in a manly comrade way. i have the same strap that I got in my 2nd year of college. all the rubber shoulder-grippy stuff has rubbed off. the only "improvement" i have made is i took the time to hunt down the exact same strap for my backup body. i salute you j: way to stick to the "they just don’t make ’em like they used to" mentality.

    I love it, and I’m exactly the same way :) Maybe that’s why we get along so well…
