On... Love.

Pondering, of all things...


In "Sense and Sensibility" a tender-hearted woman throws caution to the wind - for love. Her lack of sense tells her to follow her heart...

Many promises made alone, flowers, and sweet words exchanged... 

Sunsets and promises shared...

Suddenly he chooses another... a more "sensible" choice... honoring his public persona he's created... a choice that leaves her alone - staring out the window - waiting for him to come back over the hill to see her once again...

He doesn't return, she falls to utter dispair, only to have her sister and a man who has secretly loved her from a distance pick her up and assure her that indeed it was not her, it was him. It was nothing wrong with her character, her love, her true inner self - he felt cornered into a choice, and he foolishly didn't choose her. 

Despite her broken heart, she slowly heals and learns the man who loved her from a distance, who helped pull her back up - was the stronger man and was worth a second glance. 

It ends with the girl marrying that man... with the other man who didn't choose her watching from the hill upon his horse full of regret for allowing his one chance of true love get away. 

- Jane Austin had her stuff together, didn't she? :)

  1. Susan Gay's favorite: the third photo (sunset)

  2. The white flower with the red background is my absolutely fave of your work, of all time. And to think, I was in the general vicinity when you captured it!

    1. Yes you were Tyann - It was one of my first shots when I got out and said "I am done!" it was so cold! ha!

  3. The white on red is also my favorite. :) Rebecca Woodcock

  4. Hard, hard decision!
    narrowed it down to # 2 (the white flower blue background) and #3 - (sunset picture)..
    But, I'm a sucker for sunsets, and I love the "country feel" the photo gives off, so photo #3 it is! Love it!
    Nice entry :)

  5. White on red for me too, though my daughter likes the window best. Also, I need to re-read Sense & Sensibility! Thanks. :)
