Lindsi is my go-to girl. She's now a stay-at-home mom (kudos to her) so I know she's (almost) always available if I need a quick vent, have a random thought, or need some immediate advice. We swear our husbands are long-lost twins when it comes to personality traits, and we've sometimes been mistaken for sisters when we're out together!
Ok, so what does my friendship Lindsi have to do photography? Well, she called me today to tell me she bought a new camera...the same camera I have (except this year's model instead of last year's)!

I have the Canon SX20 IS and she is now waiting for her Canon SX30 IS to arrive in the mail! Yipee!! I think I'm just as excited for her as she is for herself!
I have been wanting a "photography buddy" for a while now. I have a lot of photographer friends but almost all of them are semi-professional or professionals with DSLR cameras and almost all of them live an hour or farther away from me. I want someone who is at or near my level of photography who also owns a point-and-shoot camera. They also have to live near me so we can get together every now and then.
Lindsi has been getting into photography as I talk more about it. She too wants to take great pictures of her (cute) kids but doesn't want to lug around a DSLR and all the gear that goes with it. She finally upgraded her P&S camera and is now ready to take her photography to the next level. She just so happened to get the same camera I have, lives near me, and is also one of my closest friends! YIPEE!!! I now have a photography buddy! We're already talking about the places we can go to try to challenge ourselves for cool pictures! I can't wait for her camera to arrive in the mail!
Do you have a "photography buddy"? How do you challenge each other?
