Last year, I submitted this piece to Pictory for consideration. Pictory is an online magazine curated by Laura Bruno Miner. Laura liked it and used it to close the showcase that month. The showcase was called "Platonic Love Stories." So here's the original scanned shot, barely edited:
Here's an excerpt from what had been published:
Though we only talk every now and again, I still consider her a close friend. We used to hang out and talk about life, love, God, photography, and silly things. I still pray for her often.

In three weeks, it's Valentines Day once again. As I'm thinking about the people I love and the people who love me, I don't feel quite lonely about this coming Valentines. It may not be a romantic love, but these friendships have meant more than any romantic relationship I've been in. So, maybe this coming month, I'll be posting my favorite portraits of my closest friends. I may just call it the "Platonic Love Series." Or maybe not.
Do you have platonic love stories?
