Love is a four letter concept. by marshmallow-pies Love is a four letter concept. by marshmallow-pies
... depending on the language you speak. :aww:
And no points given in this game, because love is priceless.

Submission for =JacquiJax, =aksdareflection and *meppol's "Love is a Four Letter Concept" Contest.
______

I bullied my family into playing a Scrabble last night :)
I had huge fun making the proper words - so there's amour (love), donner (to give), son (his/one's OR sound), brûler (to burn), désirs (desires), romantique, cave + vin (wine cellar), regard (glance/look) and more.

And apologies for not being as active recently.
______

No texture used.
Unedited
other than removing the little point numbers on the letters "A", "M", "O", "U" and "R".
The heart bokeh was done in-camera.
I've been wanting to toy around with different shapes of bokeh for a while, and this was a perfect opportunity!
______

It can have whatever interpretation you wish to give - there are quite a few in here.
Feedback is always, always appreciated.
I hope you enjoy it, and of course:

Happy Valentine's Day :heart::rose:

a little story;
i went to france for a holiday
and i met an orange caterpillar

we were camping,
and one morning i opened my tent to find it there
standing (or sitting? i dont know)
vigilant
and beautiful
so i took it outside where it would be safe
but then the next day it was back again
and then every single day after that
each morning,
just staring up at me with it's tiny little orange eyes.
so i named it
amour,
and i hoped
that it would follow me home
but it didnt
and now i am lost.

Thank you - I know bokeh is more up your alley than mine. I was worried it came out too confused and muddled up...

I love it!! The bokehs are a bit messy though... I think the lights they were coming from might have been a little over exposed.
Reply
:iconmarshmallow-pies:
marshmallow-pies Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2009
I know :( I was using Xmas lights covered with mini Chinese lanterns - the only way I can possibly get vaguely colored light. Disadvantage - the wires make gazillions of hearts. Underexposing didn't change much (I tried!) so I decided that the photo as a whole be well exposed. Meh.
