Sunday Snapshot

Lake Dunstan, Central Otago. April 2012.

I caught this glimpse into a couple's life together - she fishes, 
he sits reading, or thinking...


 
"I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: 
that each protects the solitude of the other."

  2. "If she doesn't catch a fish, we're gonna have to eat my words", he pondered.

  7. Beautiful picture and a great quote. This post made me smile. If it were my husband and myself, he would be fishing and I would have my nose in the book. :)

  8. What a stunning moment, perfectly captured in an image and in words. If only more of us "got" this in the context of our own relationships.
