Yesterday, while I was passing through the candy aisle at the grocery store, I naturally eavesdropped as a young boy stressed over what to buy for his Valentine, with the help of his mother and brother. I was simply shopping, not taking pictures. But I enjoyed hearing the sweet dilemma and it reminded me of a similar moment I experienced several years ago while taking pictures for the Daily Times. This photo is very straightforward and ordinary in it’s light and composition. But the moment is real. To me, it is tender and dear. Happy Valentines Day!
