Heart in the light

"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame." - Song of Solomon 8:6 This photo is dedicated to Tosin, the light of my heart!

Oh yeah Asikofoto.com is back up.
Each to his own!

The concept of Val's date is at the most a shallow and commercial one!

That's why we never have, for instance, a day in te year were everyone gives "freely" out of love, to the homeless or to the starving!

Why, because there is nothing financially viable about such days.

Guys, i'm not "party pooper", but feb 14th to me is just another day, there are 365.25 day in a year!

If I took an exam on "Love" and scored 1/365, don't bother to do the maths! It's a big failiure! Selah!
opps... typo alert! jide help!
val's day not date
365.25 days not day

Its all about interpretation, Valentine's day is a day set aside to celebrate love!!!That's whack..Just like birthdays Dont be party poopers join in you'll have to wait a whole year to join the celebration. Jide nice one for the lucky misses ...

Nunio...I'm really sorry to, as they say "burst your bubbles", but Valentine's day is no where close to a birthday celebration!

The Celebration of one's date of birth, has been celebrated long before the invent of Vals

Nice picture, even nicer sentiment

I agree with mr skee, I refuse to allow organisations profit from me by conforming to the whole valentines spend money routine..i dont believe i should be told when to declare love..what happened to the other 364 days in the year..y not show love on any of those days, or better still pick one of those other days (when prices are not trebled at your expense!!) to be your own personal valentines day !!! gosh i sound so bitter :o)

Hope y'all have a good day
Love the pic, if it's a thong watch for splinters!

You don't have to buy into the commercialism side to celebrate the day. I got up extra early and made puff pastry hearts with peaches for my special person. It's the thought that counts...

I'm so tired now though...ZZZzzzz

It may or not be a pair of pink thongs but for the sentiments of today, I'll interpret it so. Valentine's day is not about love, but about lust. Candles, oils, bath salts, oysters, I love it! Jide, how does one get one's woman to wear a pink thong like the one you so beautifully pitured?
Nkem, don't get me started....wink

I like this image. Your use of colour is definitely improving, between this and the picture of you on the bus - i may just become a fan of your colour work. I agree with Ade, u can do still-life when u put your mind to it. i know you hate it but its in you. Keep working at it. Lovely shot!
Happy Valentine's!
I loved this shot. Perfect to mark the ocassion.

I now think I should have shot something like this for my wife ;o)

Perfect shot.

we all seem to be going round in circles on this valentines issue and never seem to be able to arrive at some sort of compromise on the issue. I believe this is an arguement that would continue as long as there are romantics and cynics in this world.
