in orbit

My hubby walked by as I was preparing this for upload. He doesn't take that much interest in my work and even less interest in my titles but this caught his eye and I was surprised when he asked me, what are you going to call it? In orbit I said. Good, he said and walked away. He is one of the mysteries of the universe.

  • Braeden Petruk PRO 3y

    Gorgeous! Is this lovely cactus inside your house? Love all of the detail here.

    Equally as much, the interaction between you two just made my day :P He's just too cool and manly to admit that he spends all night flipping through every single photo you take :P That, or he's so in love with you that his admiration for your photos is imperceptible :)

    (Sometimes I feel like the least manly man on the planet after writing these comments. I'm so cheesy :P)
