The thing with friends I see once every few years, is that I never get a linear story.
But more like a game of space jump, quick cut montages.
And I fill in the blanks in between.
I remember Moe as the exchange student from Japan in 2005.
And she became the graduate who just finished job hunting, enjoying a holiday in Melbourne before becoming an office lady early 2007.
Cut to the OL complaining about work in Melbourne during 2009.
Cut to the OL complaining about work and (lack of) romance during 2011.
Cut to her coming back from a Hawaiian wedding with Naoki last year.
These post-wedding photos were taken during our most recent meeting in Tokyo.
They were in the middle of moving places.
They picked Shiba-koen near Tokyo Tower because normally it’s quiet.
And then we found out a huge festival was going on.
After shooting we had burgers near where they used to live.
They showed me to the station to get to my next destination and we bid farewell.
I remember the weather was sunny with blue skies.
I guess the next time we meet, I’ll be setting up for a family portrait session.
