Focus on Life - week 5 {Capture our Hearts}

Hello again~
I know, blogging has not been my strong
suit so far this year.  I will work on getting better.

Sally of Studio Sublime is taking us on a
wonderful journey this year.  
52 weeks of  exploring and photographing!

I am loving this.

This week's prompt was
Capturing our Hearts.

We were to find hearts everywhere.

Here are a few I found right off the bat.


Loved the title of this book in Target.


Sorry for the blur,
in my grocery store.
Clearly my iPhone is struggling or I am moving 
too fast. :)

And, while this is not current, it is from last April
when my daughter let me come with her to photograph
she and her friends at the 
University of Maryland's Holi Celebration.

I had no idea what I had taken until I say the photo.


Might quite possibly be one of my favorite photos of all time!

Please hop on over to Sally's blog
and see where others captured hearts this week.

You found a few hearts for sure, but that last picture is so very amazing. Sometimes the best things in life are accidents.
