Bridesmaid Topiary at Minter Gardens, Chilliwack, B.C.

Bridesmaid Topiary at Minter Gardens, Chilliwack, B.C.

I was originally going to post another image but then I thought about what the image of this bridesmaid standing out there by herself in the rain meant. I wanted to reach out and give her a hug. My biggest fear in life would be to die alone. Surely there is a lonely bridesmaid out there that feels the same way that I do. I want to experience the joy of picking out unique wedding favors with my bride, I want to have my own family to travel with, someone to share life’s greatest moments with. Two months shy of 30, I’ve pretty much done most of what I’ve wanted to do already but am missing that one piece of the puzzle. I know a lot of guys say they don’t want to get married til at least 35 or whatever, but I am not one of them. Men have a biological clock as well, it is called life expectancy! Call me naive or whatever but I find something romantic about seeing an old couple who have been together for 50 years bickering one minute, laughing about their grandchildren the next.

I really don’t see a problem with getting married quick if you find the right person you want to be with. After a certain age you should know what you like and what you need. No one else can tell you what that is.

  1. I wouldn’t talk about Viral anything whilst asking for introductions-just sayin’
    What about a compatability dating website?
    If I knew someone I’d hook you up.

  2. Relationships are like good photographs…the more time you take, the better the image. Think about what you want to say, compose the image very tightly, check the exposure and wait for the light to get just right. Patience is a requirement. If you hurry the shot, the image would be a Winogrand-like photo (instead of a Porter picture): It would be hard to interpret and not very pretty. And nobody wants that.

  3. Great analogy Gerry! I need to fine-tune my compositions.

    The rain was pretty nice compared to what we have in So Cal right now just that it was difficult to keep the lens dry. Wildfires everywhere and black skies, 100 degree temps.

  4. …fine-tune my compositions. Are you being literal or are implying you need to choose better dates? I highly recommend quality over quantity both in dating and field shooting.
