Message of love

Posted by
Soph (Enghien, Belgium) on 7 August 2007 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This is the last photo of that little serie of dewdrops. More than this and I'll become boring. After today, I'll show you a little serie of bugs.

I'd like to ask you something. Would it be possible for you to write "I love you" in your own language on a paper or on anything and take a photo of it... or a photo of a heart.. or anything that means "love" and post it on the 10th of August. It's this Friday. I really don't know if that project is possible or if you find it completely mad. The fact is that i'm completely mad about a man, and this friday, it will be 3 years that we are together. Every year, I try to find an original idea to show him how much I'm in love. He's the love of my life, we're building a house together, we have projects of baby(ies).... and well.... that project is proportional at my love for him..; I yet thank you! If you think that it's possible for you, let a comment here and on friday, I'll post the links to your gallery in the description of my photo. Big big thank you to the ones who will help me in that project, don't hesitate to pass the message around you, I hope it will get a big success!! Big big thank you!!

Very nice photo. Also very nice idea with the theme of "love". I'd recommend that for the rest of your posts this week you keep reminding people about it and link back to this image for the explanation. Hope it all works out for you.

Lovely image and great to know that u are another hopeless romantic soul. I had posted some romantic pics earlier in my animal series though. :)

Anyways here are few words on "LOVE" which i wrote when i was 16. :-)

I still remember it very much and still believe in it. Ok, it goes as below.

Love is a gift, that cannot be demanded,
A blessing that comes the the heart,
And persons sharing it, find their hearts turned to Heaven,
The place where love first had its start,

Love is a pledge that will never be broken,
A belief that will ever be true,
And when, its sent from an unselfish heart,
It is returned in full measures to you. :)

Cheers pal!!!!!
