valentine's day


I took this photo last year as a Valentine for my boyfriend who'd just gone back to Brazil, leaving me in Montreal where we met when he was an exchange student. 2 months ago he was killed in a car accident but I'll never forget the year of love we shared. I'm really happy that the flickr people dig this photo and that it's my most interesting photo according to flickr "interestingness"...I find it really interesting that I never considered this to be a great shot, I just wanted something sweet to send to a boy who sent me a huge bouquet of roses. And you know, Gabriel didn't actually like this picture very much! He was not such a fan of post-processing.


So this is for my honey-bunny. And for everyone out there missing someone this Valentine's Day. Be strong! Love is to keep smiling and make real connections with others simply through a kind gesture.
