Love on a Grand Scale: Happy Valentine’s Day

Friendship

Twin Hearts

Dear Readers,

Did you ever hit the “publish” on accident when your post is not ready? Well …. that’s what happened today! And, as you know, once the deed is done, you can’t turn back!

Anyway, maybe you’ll enjoy these photos—my favorite’s for Valentine’s Day.

I might add a few more, and a few “sweet” sayings.

But right now, I’m in the midst of helping with a new grandson and he’s my current “flame”. It’s what I call love on a “grand” scale!

Love = Infinity + Beyond… | Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

“Love does not consist in gazing at each other
but at looking together in the same direction.”

~ Unknown

This is my second interpretation for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry theme.

Can love be bound by lines, shapes, or circles? Mmm … maybe. Isn’t it two souls bound together toward a common purpose, a shared existence, despite the shapes, lines, and hairpin turns of life?

And let’s not forget—though love defies science, isn’t it a formula with a slight touch of chemistry?

Just one “angle” and just for fun,
Alexandria

cannot tell the difference.”

Shift, Subtract, See. Simple Math | Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship

“The art of subtraction can frame life into a masterpiece.
Shift to really see.
I shift. Subtract. See.
“Whatever things are lovely… think on these things.”
I shift and subtract, see the things that are good and pure.
Step over wire fences.
The art of subtraction is the art of loving well.”

~ Ann Voskamp
~ Paul, the Apostle

Friendship.
What does this photo have to do with friendship? Please bear with me a bit as nature teaches a perfect lesson.

One of the mystery’s of photography is knowing when less is more. Sometimes you try your best to capture a shot when you realize if you shift, subtract a bit, you have a fresh perspective on the whole.

Isn’t that how friendship is? The give and take, ebb and flow—the forgiveness. Followed by fresh perspective.

The subtraction of the faults lend growth to the whole. This photo in no way captures the whole of the tree nor the sky that day. But shifting to capture less provided a rich perspective on the whole. And it’s kind of funny the way the eye still sees the whole. You see the rest of the tree. And you see the whole of the sky.

And that’s when subtraction becomes more than simple math. It becomes an art—the art of loving well.

“Unless you bear with the faults of a friend, you betray your own.”
~ Publilius Syrus

Another thing—the colors here are blue and orange—complimentary colors on the color wheel. And isn’t that how friendship is? The balance of strength and weakness. The result? The perfect blend of mutual love, laughter, and life—rich enduring friendship.

Peace,
Alexandria
