Matters of Heart

It seemed appropriate to take pictures of hearts today. This is a paperweight that I’ve had for years, given to me by my Valentine.

Heart of Glass

Shot at f8, 1/200, ISO400, 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens. Saturation and tint tweaked a bit to create the rainbow effect.

One of my favorite quotes:

Le cœur a ses raisons, que la raison ne connaît point. On le sent en mille choses.

Translation: The heart has its reason, which reason does not know. It is felt in a thousand things.

This is a wonderful story for Valentine’s Day, a son telling of the deep, abiding love his parents shared. There is a link to the audio version of the story, but you don’t want to miss the photos on the website!

Happy Valentine’s Day.
