Foo Foto Contest--February Twenty Ten

I lost a good friend today.
In the spirit of Robert Lee, let's make the theme this month, friendship.

Theme: Friendship

Rules:
One entry per month
You must be the photographer
And try to make the image a recent one.

Winner gets bragging rights and picks the next month's theme.

Good luck everyone.

Thanks! I am using a Canon 450D. It's my first DSLR, and I'm really enjoying it so far. That particular shot has been sharpened a bunch, because I'm still not very good at taking pictures of moving children and animals.

EDIT: This is an old photo taken with a Kodak "One time use" camera that we've just recently scanned onto our hard drive. Though it doesn't fit into the contest rules as a recent photo and should not be considered as an entry, I wanted to share it as it does represent a strong lifelong friendship. This is an early picture of our now 21 year old twin daughters and I've never seen a stronger bond between two individuals than what they share.
