I'm Counting The Minutes....

I'm counting the minutes in rose petals, my love, until our next rendezvous. Meet my darling, at that little French Cafe' - you know the one. We'll sit at our usual corner table, where we can sip chablis and savor the fragrance of new azalea blossoms until I lose myself in your smile and the gentle touch of your hand on mine...

Or is it all just a dream?

Shot taken indoors with black backdrop, f-5.6 @ 1/60. Enhanced in PS Elements.

(Hey, mabe I should give up this photo stuff and start writing romance novels! lol :)!!
