Love Thursday: January 24th, 2008


Welcome back to Love Thursday, everyone!  I'm so thrilled that Love Thursday has found a home here at Shutter Sisters, and hope you'll participate every week on Thursdays.  To remind you how this works:  please share links of your images depicting love in the comments below -- your images could be symbols of love, or images which illustrate fraternal love, romantic love, love of life, love of a child, love of chocolate, whatever.  The images should be original works, and they can be to your blog, or photo site, or a flickr image -- whatever.

I can't wait to see what you share.  If you're looking for some inspiration, be sure to check out what Camera Shy Momma, keeper of the chocolates and sweet|salty captured through their lenses -- beautiful work!

    Response: He knew love.
    And while he was on this earth he knew love, and he taught me so very much about love, especially loving those things which cannot be fixed, those things that we must love through their brokenness.

I'm giddy about this Karen! I guess considering it's still Wednesday where I am, it's pretty obvious. Thanks for bringing it to Shutter Sisters.

I am so excited about Love Thursdays! I can't wait to explore my photography with love in mind.

I took the easy route...recent engagement photos that were taken. But I am in love with the fun and emotion in the second picture...that's my take love this week.

yay! i'm so glad Love Thursday is back!! :)

yesterday my friend O. and I gave out love notes to our city (per the inspiration of shutter sister Krystyn Heide) and the people we found on the street. each note had either a merci chocolate or starbucks card attached. after i posted, several commenters from all over the US said they'd do the same for their cities. i hope the idea spreads!
