heart hearts

The lovely Pia Jane Bijkerk has a wonderful project in progress called my heart wanders: a collection of subtle hearts in special spaces, which is a "collective book project where ANYONE can create and submit a photograph". The idea is to photograph a made or found heart in an interior setting and subtlety is key (and really hard to pull off). Cindy has given it a try and here are some of her submissions.

Dust Off Your Heart
I used a dusting of baby powder and a heart template cut out of paper.
The title is kind of like an "Ode to the Lonely Heart".



China Heart
I have a collection of this china. I liked the shadow of the heart from
the handle. The black background in the china is picked up in the shadow.


Love Tokens
I collect enamel jewelry. Scott is always looking for quarters for laundry.
I think of this as "Home Is Where the Heart Is" or "Love Tokens".

I love this project so much. I tried, but did not feel but did not feel as if my photos were worthy of standing next to these.

thanks ladies! mrs. french you can do it. i'm no great shakes as a photographer, but it was fun to do and you never know - it's just an email.

the first one was sort of an accident. it was just the heart on the plain white table and i thought i was done. a few minutes later, the sun came out and the lace curtain created a shadow. i was just lucky to notice it!
