Still Frames of a Spring Cruise
We went back into the archives and pulled out a whole bunch of great photos from our Spring 2004 Caribbean cruise. Browsing through these photos brings back some fantastic memories… but also reminds us of a sad reality. Some of these characters (Donny, Sobe, etc.) will forever remain best friends of ours. They are true friends, the kind of people you can rely on when it counts. Others in these photos (Sam, Nick, etc.) have dwindled down to being nonexistent in our lives, mostly due to selfish back-stabbing actions on their own behalves.
But either way, when we look back at these photos we both agree that none of this really matters. When you capture a still frame on camera you freeze that moment in time. All events that follow that moment aren’t reflected in the image. You only capture life as it was right then at that slit second. As depicted in these photographs, Sam and Nick used to be great friends of ours, but since then their foul actions have destroyed relationships that we all admittedly miss from time to time. Unfortunately these actions were also too cruel to easily disregard. While we do miss the people that they were, we don’t miss them.
One thing is for sure though… the time spent on this cruise could easily be ranked 10 out of 10. We all had a blast, and we cherish the moments in every one of these photographs! Thanks to everyone in them for making these moments unforgettable.
