Feel the love!


Happy Valentine week everyone!


Here's 3 reasons why I took this picture :

      1)Valentine is the theme of the week. But don’t forget, the Valentine day is just a date. You can be nice and romantic with your lover at anytime :) It will be a greater surprise as it will be unexpected!

      2)Probably the first and last time I take flower shot in the year (I like to saw them, but not doing it :P)

      3)That should be the first reason… but I kept the best for the end. I dedicate this picture to my girlfriend.


I’ll try to do a short story… Few thousand of kilometers separate my girlfriend and me. She’s in India (10 and half hours of time difference) for a while now. So we weren’t together for the Valentine day and guess what ? As my romantic side never thought about the time zone, I totally miss the valentine day (for her)… but not for me. So to gain her forgiveness, I was thinking about doing something special. But this year, I had many constraints. For example, I can’t send flowers by priority mail to India… so, in fact, I was screwed. What about doing something I’m good at! Unfortunately, I can’t send her an Oracle database with some PL/SQL code… She won’t find that romantic (sadly). My last chance was to do a neat romantic picture. Here’s the result! I hope that will be good enough :P
