Happy 40th Anniversary!!

Posted by Ruthiebear (Titusville, NJ, United States) on 17 November 2013 in People & Portrait.

Today is our 40th anniversary. Here is a photo from about the time we first began dating in college.
I did not take this photo, the quality is not great because it was taken so many years ago with a cheap camera.

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.
