Kissed By Nostalgia ...


“Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.”
           ~ Khalil Gibran
               ~ 1883-1931
I saw these X’s & O’s – symbols of hugs and kisses – etched on a tree a few weeks before Valentine’s Day 2020 at Lehigh Parkway, Allentown, Pennsylvania and presented the image in sepia to enhance a nostalgic feel.

I’m not sure how long they’ve been there, but I first photographed them in October 2014, just before Sweetest Day – that image was posted on this blog as “X’s & O’s” on October 15, 2014.

The Town In The Window ...




“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
                    ~ Henri Matisse
                              ~ 1869-1954
 Beautiful flowers pop with color in the window of Fragrant Designs Florist, Belvidere, New Jersey, greeting the town reflected in the window on a rare warm February afternoon just after Valentine’s Day.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

True Love ...


"For you and I have a guardian angel
On high with nothing to do
But to give to you and to give to me
Love forever true."

Retro Valentine ...


"Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
falling in love with you."
           ~ "Can't Help Falling In Love"
                       ~ from Elvis Presley's 1961 movie "Blue Hawaii"

You can almost hear a nearby jukebox playing
the great Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love"
as you and your sweetie share a shake with two straws
in this Retro Valentine.
