The year is 2009, and it's October at the PPE show in New York. Wandering around the lower level where the classes are held I bumped into two of my most favorite people, Tony Corbell and Nick Vedros. My life with the two of them in it has been one adventure after another.
At some point years ago and only Nick would remember when, he started doing his superhero pose, sort of a cross between Superman and Captain Chaos, AKA "Him" from the Cannonball Run series. If you know Nick then at least once in an email you've received over the years you've probably got a shot of Nick in pose mode.
The fun of Throwback Thursday though is about memories and in this case nothing but laughs. Hanging out with these two, in particular on the road with Hasselblad University back in the 90's brings back one story after another. Along with those memories comes the purest definition of friendship I can think of. We've worked hard and played hard, and there's nothing we wouldn't do for each other.
Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget.
Even if you don't use throwback images on your blog to remind your clients of the importance of memories, take the time for your own enjoyment and go find an old photograph or two. Then take the time to savor the memories, because there's no such thing as just a picture.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
