I took this picture in 2006 when I was still working in San Antonio at the library. We had just started planning for a blogging class for our customers and my team and I went on a photography jaunt down to the Alamo downtown. It was a really nice day I recall for a trolley ride. We always had a lot of fun together and I still miss my team/dear friends a great deal. This evening I was trying to find a certain picture to post but couldn’t. BUT…in the process, I did get to look at some photographs I’ve not enjoyed in a while. This is one of them. At the time I snapped this, Mark didn’t even have a hive anymore because he’d gotten busy with work. And I wasn’t allergic to bees yet. Nor was I aware how five years later, we’d be knee deep in honey. I also shot this with a tiny little Kodak point-and-shoot and I couldn’t have been happier with the way it all turned out – the picture, the bee business, the friends I’ll keep for life and the beekeeper who finally got to do what his heart had been wanting to return to for so long.
