Andie & Seth | Ghost Ranch, New Mexico
We were headed back to the car and I let Andie and Seth walk ahead so I could photograph them walking and the last bit of light on the horizon, and then I crouched down and just let the quiet fill up my ears.
I picked up a couple of rocks to take home.
I scooped up a handful of soft red dirt and rubbed it all over my hands. I even tasted a tiny bit. I felt so happy I thought I might cry.
I thought, “Here I am in the desert in New Mexico at sunset, with two already-dear friends. I’m really, really here.”
