This image of an intimate moment between roommates was taken at my friend Chris’ birthday weekend at an vineyard estate up in Sonoma. Of the 300+ images snapped that weekend, it’s one of my favorites. It’s also one of only seven that I’ll share with the public on Flickr. In the past, being the friend of a photographer meant that your picture might be snapped often, but rarely appear in public (with a few notable exceptions). Of course, with the advent of digital photography and Flickr and Facebook, it’s almost impossible to have images of yourself not appear on the Web. With this in mind, I try to strike a balance between sharing my work and sharing the lives of me and my friends on-line.
