Even though we post a LOT of photography of everything from bugs to bakeware to bunnies, we’re not immune to the lure of the birthday date photo.

Even though we don’t usually post them anywhere, they’re still cherished memory triggers of happy times.

On occasion, we’ll even take the oh-so-cliche photo of what we’re eating or drinking when dining in public so we will remember the glow of the moment in a decade or two.

Truth be told, I’m happy to comply with Rick’s frequent requests to take my photo when I a) am freshly showered and tidied up, b) am in low light and shot from above, and c) have time to strategically pose my hands where my neck is most comfortable.

“Hey! You look wonderful to me right now. Let me take your picture.”

It’s another way to say “I love you.”

But I especially love the photos, often shot without the other one knowing, that explain why.

Being specific and expressive about what, exactly, draws you to another has been scientifically proven to cause people to fall in love with one another.

Over, and over, and over again.

Do your relationship a favor today: take a photo that explains why.

Happy Birthday again Kas! You’re only getting better and looking fine, in any pose. People have told me they don’t think I’m as old as I am. You do know fat helps fill out the wrinkles!? lol.
