A Photo a Week Challenge: The Look of Love

I love you, Daddy

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. For many people, this is the day that represents love. Love comes in so many forms (romantic, platonic, familial), it’s hard to pin it down. I like to think of love as an action instead of an emotion. This picture is from my nephew’s wedding two years ago. While I have many pictures of the bride and groom, I adore this picture of the bride and her father. I also love the look that the groom is giving his new father-in-law. Every day we choose where and how we give our love, not just on Valentine’s Day.

And just in case you think I’m neglecting the person I choose to love, here he is looking at me with so much love in his eyes it stops my heart:



All you need is love. Love makes the world go round. Love changes everything. Love means different things to everyone. Find images of love to share. Then blog them and post a link to your find here.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

      1. It’s a special place, that’s for sure.

        Some of the photos from our first visit are probably better than these (certainly the skies were blue), but they’re pre-digital, and would have taken ages to scan. That said, going through them all with Rich and Sue just makes us all want to go back there!
