My Hiking Partner

This is my missus, but I manage to show you only her back. It is not because she hikes faster, I actually pay too much attention to many of my friends in the jungle looking for good photos. This always makes me huff and puff in order to catch up with her, which I used to do to overtake her other admirers many years back.

 
She does not have much interest in photography, but always discovers potential photography opportunities, “potential” in her perception. I like that.          

 
We will not go hiking this weekend as to attend her Bachelor’s Degree Convocation Ceremony, which happens only at this age.

W lesie lepiej mieć bratnią duszę, zawsze to przyjemniej. Pozdrawiam.
The forest is better to have a soul mate, always friends. Yours.

Congratulation to your wife!

Now on to you, I know why you're trailing behind her. Admit it, there is a dark side of story to that :-)

Have fun weekend celebrating with your family! It's a huge accomplishment..

Congratulations to your wife on her degree. Congratulations to her as well for keeping you on your toes and for finding potential photos. I would say your hiking partner is as wonderful as mine.

The two of you work together well. My hiking partner does the same, finds things for me to photograph but then I have to run to catch up. Congrats to your wife on her degree!

I'm sure your "missus" makes sure to walk slow enough so you can catch up with her!!

Good for her, getting that degree. My congratulations to her...and to you for choosing such a brilliant woman..and to her for choosing you.

I am, once again, in India. Monsoon rains are unbelievable, snarling the already snarled Mumbai traffic.
