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!

    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.

This is the first time I share a photo (with people I don't know). I hope it's ok. I really love this idea. I'm not a photographer, but I love taking pictures. I thought this one might fit here:

Love the site and the idea...

I shot a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery yesterday at a friend's request. Her dad was being buried and she knew he would love the ceremony, so she wanted photographs. I poked around the section of the cemetery we were in for as long as they'd let me.

So many military wives are buried here, and their headstones, as far as I could tell, mostly had just their middle initial and "his wife" underneath the name. It touched me - so many families, so much sacrifice. (I'm as lefty as they come but I'm a sucker for love.) This is Stella G.

next to her neighbor Jane Rodger.
