Pictures of Love intro...

Pictures of love was born in valentines week 2012  and i originally wrote about my own lack of being romantic and how i feel about valentines day. 

Since coming up with the Christmas Present project see here that ran through Advent, I thought it would be good to have a go at something that could get a few more folk involved and would also last a little longer and could generate some interest in our local community and maybe even further afield! As a result of this pondering I came up with the idea of ‘Pictures of love’.

The word love is often thrown around and I wonder if we really understand what it is and its implications. This project asks us to think about what we understand by that word... now you could choose to be as profound as you like around this whole area, in essence it doesn't matter!

Pictures of love was a year-long photo project that anyone could have a go at... all you had to do is think about something you love... this could be absolutely anything... a person, pet, piece of countryside, faith... anything... then take a photo of it and send me a copy... we are currently running a photo exhibition of the photos that have been sent in.

As well as this I asked a few people I know to send me a photo of something they love and I asked them to write a paragraph or two about it, these are seen on the other posts on this blog.

I hope you enjoy!
