          Hi Elin , Thank you so much i appreciate your kind comments ๐Ÿ˜‰

          I could hardly believe my luck i went out today to shoot a timelapse only to forget my camera tripod plate , i carried on thinking i could at least get a few photos of the river in flood then i spotted this little padlock fastened to the fence and as soon as i seen the heart i knew it was the missing piece for this weeks challenge.

          No timelapse but something always turns up ;).

      A rose, the same colour as the weather warning here on Valentines day. The roof survived as did the roses, but now it is your turn to receive the beast Diane, stay safe.

        Beautiful rose Elin, the softness suits it!

      There is a saying in photography…
      that to capture the “romance of a kiss”… don’t capture the kiss itself.

      Capture the “almost kiss”.

      What do think?

          Actually it was taken in our city’s zoo Elin.ย  They have a section specifically for polar bears.ย  When this image was taken, there were about 5 bears in it that were either abandoned or their mom died and then they were rescued when they young cubs and brought to the zoo’s polar bear conservation area.

          Here’s a link to it:
