On a rainy day last April, my then-boyfriend and I went to the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum. The museum was fairly interesting. But the reason I remember it was because a museum photographer took a great photo of my boyfriend and I kissing. A photograph that we should have bought, but didn't because we'd spent far too much money that day on an entrance ticket.
In our year-long relationship, we got some pretty great photos. But we always regretted not buying the Ripley's one.
My current boyfriend and I met while I was studying abroad. When I left at the end of May, we realized that we didn't have any pictures of just the two of us. We had some good ones that we both were in, but we were with other friends as well.
So when I went to visit him in July, we tried to take a get a photo of the two of us. But there was always something wrong - the lighting was off, the photo was blurry, one of us looked weird, etc. We finally got a good one just a few minutes before I left, as we were waiting in line at the airport.
I love being in photos, especially with the people I love. I enjoy taking them, too. Sure, the memory will be the same whether I'm in the photo or not. But I like having the reminder of my sometimes-blurry smiling face, and they make me happy and nostalgic when I see them.
Especially when they're with my long-distance boyfriend. It's nice to have a reminder of us together, until the next time I get to see him.What's your favorite photo of you and your S/O?Image Source
