Photo Heart Connection: April

Apr13 072 copy
April's Photo Heart Connection nearly got away from me, and I would have been sorely disappointed had it done so! And, at first, I thought, "Oh, no. I really didn't take many photos last month."

Uhm, no, not so. Not even close. I'd forgotten just how much bumming Phil and I had accomplished. We put many a mile on our gypsy shoes....what a wonderful partner in crime, I've got!

So, tons of photos, right? And, here's where a little knowledge becomes a dangerous thing. As I looked at each photo, I began overthinking should have used aperature priority mode here. This one? A faster shutter speed would have equalled a crisper shot. And so on, and so on, and so on. Or, as they say in "The King & I," etc. etc. etc.!

Lack of techinical expertise aside, I love this shot. It evokes time with Phil, just the two of us. Great conversation over great food. And, I love Frederick, MD...the colors, the architecture, and an array of wonderfully unique shops. (I did some serious damage at "Metro Retro!") Best of all? There's two...not one, but two....dangerously awesome chocolate shops. I patrionized both, of course.

Clickety clickety on the button below, and go a visiting. There's some seriously cool photography to check out, but better yet, are the stories that go with the photos.




Love this shot represents so much to you, but it evokes a down home, retro, quaint heart feeling!

I get it : Sweetie time! Phil and chocolate. Nothing sentimental about that! I had to laugh at your observation--the more we learn in the photography classes about aperture and shutter speed, etc, the more critical we can get about our own stuff. You're right--it just takes practice to learn a craft--any craft. Thanks for sharing.


The best photos bring back happy memories, no? That looks like a fun place to explore, with two chocolate shops -- I will have to put it on my list. My daughter and family live in D.C., so we go frequently to see the grandgirls. We're heading back in June, hopefully before it's too hot.


You're blessed to have such a compatible "partner in crime" as Phil. Great Photo-Heart Connection!

Sounds like this is the perfect photo-heart connection: beautiful place, good memories, great photo. And chocolate (my favourite food group!).

I love the sense of wandering fun your words and this photo evoke. It sounds like a fantastic month. It's a good thing you did the review, or you would still have the perception that you didn't do too much! Thanks for sharing in the Photo-Heart Connection.

Love this! This image just shouts "we had a good time." You're blessed to have a partner in crime!!


what a great photo and what a nice story. It also invited out to the shop to visit, if only because of that.
