Why Aesthetics Matter

To my very good and bestest friend, Sam
(aka Sammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyyyyy)
on his 40th Birthday:

We've had so many great -- make that aesthetically great -- times over the years. Luckily, we captured some of it on film and megapixels.

There was that great trip to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby:

And that epic backpacking trip in Yosemite over Red Peak Pass:

One of our very first Boys' Trips after most of us had settled (or were in the process of settling) down:

After that, we did a lot of great things together, but we didn't seem to get it aesthetically right. That is, until our trip to Mexico this year with our families.

We arrived in style.

We partied hard.

We had picture perfect moments.

And we played hard, too, capped off with that PERFECT wedge:

Nice shot, SAMMY!

It still makes me (and Jamie) think how aesthetically great the canoe trip really could have been. Oh well.

I wish you all the best on your 4oth!

Happy Birthday, SAM!
