45/365 Love

"Words of Love"

I am not one of those people who saves every card and letter that I get, though sometimes I wish I was. It's not that I'm not sentimental; it's that I don't like all of the clutter.  I know, I know, I shouldn't consider cards clutter.  I guess I am lucky to be able to say that through my lifetime I have received so many cards and letters that I honestly don't know what I would do with them all had I saved them.  Don't judge me. I am not completely heartless; I have saved some.

I love the card that Weber gave me today for Valentine's Day.  Though he says these things to me every day, sometimes it is nice to see them in print.  I decided that I wanted to photograph the card using multiple exposures, something I have never done and really had no idea what I was doing.  My goal was to create an image that contained both the outside and the inside of the card.  I did manage to do that.  I also learned that I now have just enough information to be dangerous when it comes to this technique!  It's time to search for some kind of tutorial so that I can learn how to do this correctly!

Today I also wanted a picture of the two of us together.  Working with the camera's timer for self-portraits is still quite challenging to me; this one is not as sharp as I would like.  The positive here is that something from today is way better than nothing.  We had added difficulties trying to get this shot because the dogs and the cat thought they needed to be in it as well.

Happy Valentine's Day!!
May your hearts and homes be filled with love.
