Don’t think you didn’t get caught sneakin’ all up in this biz.

I showed you mine, now you show me yours. Seriously. If this guy gets me the photo he was snappin at the same time as yours truly, dinner will be served (and by dinner I mean, you can come over and I’ll make you dinner and we can get to know one another). On me.

I love finding images like this while post processing. They make me smile.

Full blog of these two crazy kids coming very, very soon.
