Beautiful dedication for this... mhh, let's say "weird" ("stupid" came first, i admit ;) day. A beautiful figure standing in the rain, walking in the rain, and the most important thing isn't to be gentle with ourselves ? We should buy flowers to ourselves (too) for that special day - you know what ? I'll do that, today, i'll offer myself a iil' bunch not to forget how important it is, and i'll think again to your image and that mirror pool you caught in such an inspired lighting & compo... with the elegance of the heart - be thanked, Sharon*

@k@: Well...I have to admit that I don't buy into the whole "Valentines Day" thing...
Love is something that should be shown every day, through kindness and consideration toward each other and to ourselves. I'll buy some flowers for me today too...just because :)
vraiment superbe cette composition !

How can one's heart be lonely when we share such images as these so full of the magic and wonder of the moment? Thank you for the glimpses you give us of the world according to Sharon.

Umbrellas seem to carry their own little photo-atmosphere with them, don't they ?
14 Feb 2011 6:56am
@Ronnie 2¢: They do :)
As much as I hate all the rain we get, at least it brings the umbrellas out in droves.
Perfectly presented in black and white.

Marcher seule sous la pluie avec des pensées plein la tête !!
Une très bonne photo !

This is a beautiful mono Sharon, as always, but this one is particurarly awesome with its strong contrasts. Rainy or sunny, with or without love, we are alone anyway.
14 Feb 2011 8:49am

14 Feb 2011 9:54am
The photo is splendid. Not easy so to determine if this silhouette is feminine or masculine even if the umbrella may be an indication...
No matter, the loneliness has no genre.

A mirrorred pool of thoughts- that could be a motto for this community here on Am3. There are so many both interesting and touching thoughts to find here, both in pictures and words. And this one from you is a very good example, like all your posts.

Wow, how great is the mood you've captured here? Love this shot!
15 Feb 2011 12:46am
Valentine's Day! Pffft.
This is another beautiful shot. I know I've said this before but in this age of DRO and HDR and whatever else, it's so refreshing to see a B&W photo with both black and white in it. Composition is great. Love the reflection. Really gets the mood across.
15 Feb 2011 2:43am
Nice glistening, wet surfaces everywhere. I like that silhouetted lady.
15 Feb 2011 2:59am
You do these so well. Always love the umbrella as an element.
