Love Thursday 2

This girl loves loves loves her guitar. Loves it.
I don't blame her. This guitar is very beautiful and has mother-of-pearl inlays in the headstock.
And her sweetie gave it to her.
She played me a song while I took photos of her.
Check out Love Thursday. It's like having a school assignment that you want to do.
Happy Love Thursday!

Love this photo. And I agree, when I was choosing a photo and writing my little post last night, I got excited. It is like a school assignment you want to do. I'm already thinking about next week.

the "red shoes" set is special...I know what it is like to love a guitar...and Love Thursday..you get an A!

"Love Thursday" sounds like my kind of day! I really need to scoot over to shutter sisters, don't I : ) I am an only child so I think these sisters might be just the thing for me.

You know I love the picture! I need a wall in a house devoted to my love for your work, yep a whole wall!

Bridget July 31, 2008 at 8:12 AM  

Great photo! I too love Love Thursday :)

tho' i'm not a shutter sister, this just might be what i need to get me out of my blog funk.

thank you!!!

Emily July 31, 2008 at 10:18 AM  

Happy LT!

I love the subtelties in this capture: the guitar embrace, the way her tattoo wraps itself around her arm, the interesting thing just out of the frame that has caught her attention...

Hi all! Oh goody! I love new visitors, so thank you my Shutter Sisters sisters for coming over!

Hi Kath,

I just went to your blog and saw that lovely heart you posted. You have some incredible photos on your blog and I'm looking at some more right now. ;-)

I agree about the "assigment." If school had been as fun as Shutter Sisters projects, I would have never done my work on the bus the day the things were due! I'm with you...I already have my photo for next week picked out. I am stockpiling them in my flickr account in a Love Thursday set.

Hi Elk,

You should have seen her eyes when she talked about her guitar. I was so happy she found something like that to love. I'm glad I got an A...thank you!

Hi christina,

You DEFINITELY need to scoot over to Shutter Sisters, like NOW. I am going to bug you if I don't start seeing some of your photos pop up there soon. Come on, I did the JPG thing, now it's your turn!

Let's get your photo wall started and I'll help hang the pictures. I need to get over to Milwaukee and see you already.

Hi Bridget,

Thank you, and I just went over to visit your blog. I love how creative you were with your photo!

And your baby is precious.

Hi Julochka,

There's not much to being a Shutter Sister except sharing a love of photography and sharing photos with other supportive sisters. I think you would enjoy this community...go on over and check it out. I'm sure you would have lots of pretty images to share.

Hi Emily,

She's such a lovely model and friend. I took so many photos of her (much more than in the set I linked to) and she has a very magical quality to her.

Thank you for appreciating her!

Hi Elizabeth,

I'm so glad. I think you'll be looking for lots of love and ideas for Love Thursdays. I know I do.


Conchi July 31, 2008 at 3:34 PM  

What luck! Someone plays a song for you.

I think like you. Every week I look forward to the HLT. And step Hours saying Ohh! that beautiful.

Oh! What a treat to be the star of your show again! :)

tangobaby August 1, 2008 at 10:24 AM  

Hi Red Shoes! Do you have a Scottish accent yet?!!

You are the STAR of YOUR show and I just got to take pictures of it! I swear, I might love these photos more and more every day...and there always seems to be a brilliant opportunity to share them again. I hope you don't get bored with me.


tangobaby August 1, 2008 at 10:29 AM  

Hi guys! I was so excited to see Red Shoes here (the star) that I forgot to answer the comments in order. Silly me!

Hello Chonchi! Hello Spain!

Thank you for visiting. Yes, I was very lucky to get a song AND a lot of great photos.

Hello robin-bird,

I love this whole series, and every time I go through the photos, another one pops out at me. If there is a certain theme or mood, I can always find a photo in here that fits it.

Hi sarah,

Yes, I like those pics too. I think you should try your hand (eye) at Love Thursdays. I think you would have wonderful love to show us.
