It’s Tuesday. It’s time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is F and, instead of the usual one word per week, we decided to present five “F” photo stories in celebration of our Valentine Week Special. Inspired by David Levithan’s beautiful novel, The Lover’s Dictionary, and fueled by the equally beautiful teaser entries on his Twitter, here are five words that speak of love, one way or another. I have asked permission from a few real-life friends as well as fellow photo enthusiasts on Instagram to bring life to Levithan’s lyrical entries. I hope you like this beautiful collaborative post, and I wish you all a lovely Valentine’s week! =)
F is for…

Here’s to friendships that last forever!
