Weekly Photo Challenge: Friends

June 10, 2012

Friends are a big part of why we take photos.  I love to capture my family and friends in photos because it reminds me of the fun times we have had together.  These photos are like a tonic for my spirit.  And while family is incredibly special, friends hold this special place because we get to choose them.  We don’t have to make things work out with our friends, but we choose to make things work out with our friends.  Good friends are like the family we choose.

Since this is Mudpieville, we’ll focus on some of my favorite memories of friends and mud for these photos for the Weekly Photo Challenge.


These girls got muddy running on the beach in the rain, trying to catch up with us parents who couldn’t hear them over the howl of the wind, and then collapsing with exhaustion when we finally turned around and saw them.  Welcome to summer on the Washington Coast.  You can tell it’s summer because the children are not wearing shoes and have not turned blue from cold.


Friends who muck together are stuck together?


I cannot recount how many shrimp and mullosks were found in the thick, wet sand this day.  But it was an exciting element of this day at the beach.


Okay, this isn’t really about mud at all.  But you know when the snow melts, it’s going to be very muddy here.  I just love this photo of one of my family’s favorite traditions, a trip with friends to the mountains every winter.  The kids always want to eat the icicles.

    Lovely kids and friends. Cute and i love them…
    The poop trashing picture with horse is the best one for the theme I think.
