"Hey Skip, this one's called the Widow Maker! I hope your life insurance is paid up!"
I remember meeting our guide, a woman who couldn't have been more than 5' 3" and I was sure we were going to die on the river! The other boats had these big muscle-bound captains and we had this little woman. Well, I learned not to judge a book by it's cover or anything else for that matter. On one of the rapids we cleared the boat and she had us all back in, safe, sound and laughing in a matter of minutes. She was amazing!
Today's post isn't just a throwback moment, but a reminder to celebrate the lives of friends we've lost over the years. They're all watching over us at this very moment and it's those incredible memories that help keep them alive in our hearts.
So, what are doing to celebrate Throwback Thursday? When was the last time you looked through those old images of yours and thought about all the stories that bubble to the surface - all thanks to being a photographer. What an amazing industry we're all a part of!
