Friendship is very important to me. These photos are all of my good friend Wyne Veen. Wyne was in most of my photos for a long time for obvious reasons: She was always around and she is quite pretty. She looks good with or without clothes. This is a very convenient friend to have when you're exploring photography and you're too shy or lazy to ask strangers to pose for you. She was there at every party and every vacation. She was there in Tuscany where I ordered her and my sister into the swimming pool in the middle of the freezing night, demanding they flip their hair back 50 times. She would order me right back, bossing me around, telling me how to take my picture. But she is the world's best still-life photographer, so she is allowed.

This is when we came out of a drugstore in Tirol, Austria, where everything was pink. Wyne and her sister bought fine-liner pens. It was an average day in the Alps - cows with bells on and butterflies and men named Michael who think skiing is better than snowboarding.
