Have you ever said to a friend: I’m going to commemorate my friendship with you in a framed photograph, something that says exactly how I think of us.
One of these kids did:
Alas, it appears that they are friends in frame only. More after the jump.
I came across the photo above while walking down my street over in the Fairfax district yesterday. It’s even sadder in a wide shot. Here’s how I found it:
Do they sell a “Best Friends For Now” frame?
The picture frame reminds me a lot of my relationship with certain aspects of life in Los Angeles. There are things about this city that I thought I’d always love, so much so that I would have bought a Friends Forever frame and taken a picture next to them.
The 8 Track Kid and The Powerhouse – Friends Forever
The 8 Track Kid and Aaron’s Records – We’ll Always Be Together
Me and Driving a Car – Best Friends for Life
In time my relationship with these things changed. I grew up, they closed or it just became apparent it was not working out between us.
I’m sure we all have had a person, place or thing in this city that we thought we’d always love, only to leave it behind when we moved on. What are yours?
