A little love...


"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake 
and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make 
a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have 
become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that 
you should ever part. Because this is what love is.

 
Photography love...


Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not 
the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just 
being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.

 
Photobucket


Love itself is what is left over when being 'in love' has 
burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.



ShutterLoveTuesdays


Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards 
each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms 
had fallen from our branches we found that we were 
one tree and not two."

--St. Augustine



Sweet Shot Day







And, if you have a moment and want to show me a little
