Love Thursday: Private time

As you've probably guessed by now, my favourite images to capture are private moments of people expressing their love. The image above was taken early one morning on the Oregon coast -- i was taking a walk with a friend of mine when she noticed this father taking his baby boy out to see the ocean.  They were beautiful, and it was a beautiful moment.

Happy Love Thursday, all.  Please leave your links of love in the comments below.  Also, be sure to take a look at the private moments captured by girl seeking grace and angs*photos left in the Shutter Sisters Flickr pool.  

And may you share a quiet moment of love today.

What a gorgeous photo of love. I'm so pleased to share one of the ones I'm especially pleased with from a weekend I spent with my adult son and his family while they were on vacation in the Okanagon in British Columbia. My son is a very involved and loving father, spending all kinds of time and attention with his "girls". This is just one of those special moments:

Happy Love Thursday,
