Default Photo Challenge ~171 Show a Heart {02/05/2013}

I'm taking a leaf out of Ina's book and going seasonal. I do have some photos taken, but I've been sick in bed the last few days, so I haven't yet uploaded them. There are hearts everywhere with Valentine's day coming up, so where can you find them!
I hope to get to the computer tonight, but I found some graffiti on a wall, and a heart shape on a manhole cover. In fact, I took a photo of that well over a year ago, and had to take another last week because it was easier than finding my first one!



Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~HAVE FUN!

I thought this would be a difficult challenge for me....but then I remembered the hearts I am crocheting for my sister-in-law. She has asked me to make 50 of them before the end of June, but my fingers are having trouble with the fine crochet due to a but of arthritis, so I'm not sure whether I'll be able to make that many.
Sabrina, I hope you feel better soon.

Gosh, Ina - those are lovely. Are you making them all different or just a total of 50 assorted ones. I'm sorry about the arthritis! I sometimes worry about getting it - my mother had it quite badly. The one time I thought I was getting it early it was just a ganglion which went away on its own, luckily.

Here are my graffiti, manhole cover and the sign in a 2 shop window. Inflation has meant that Pound Shops (or Euro) are a thing of the past!!

Sabrina, I had to laugh about the graffiti! My friend's name is Ev! We still have lots of dollar stores here in Canada and the U.S. Most of the goods come from China and Taiwan!
My arthritis is not bad.....never bothers me....except when I have my hands cramped up for a period of time doing finicky things.
We've had quite the weather here today. It snowed most of the night and all day. I was out in my backyard taking photos and sank into the snow up to the bottom of my knees! But it's not nearly as bad as in the New England states.

Sabrina, I hope you are feeling better and Ina those are beautiful hearts. I took this last week at the zoo and didn't realize they had formed a heart until I loaded the photos onto my computer.

Oh - that's just brilliant! I got a photo of two geese last year on my birthday, and it was like that - their necks making a heart. Just about feeling better - thank you.

Audrey, what a beautiful photo of the flamingos. Such a serendipidous (sp?) moment, to catch that heart.

A little late but better than never, huh? This is my heart... and how I fixed my daughter's hair for school which also happened to be Valentine's Day.

Amber, that is delightful! I never learned how to do French braids.....even though I had two daughters who wanted me to try. I'll bet your DD's friends were jealous!

Fabulous plaiting, Amber! It looks like a lot of work. I tried to get DH to do mine a couple of times, but it wasn't worth it . A plain plait I can manage yourself.
Glad you got your card - and I'm glad I checked with Dawn because the address in the RAK list was your old one.
