Is the word this week at Our Beautiful World and we have a guest designer.  Our beloved Linda will be our guest this week and I truly can't wait to see what she has in store for us.  I just adore perusing over her blog, she has such a keen eye for photography and she is as sweet in person as she is on her blog!
Now for my photo of today
I used Picasa , black and white with a red filter for better contrast.  He is the man I love, my soul mate, the father of my children, my everything!
Other things I love you have seen here my children, my pets,  flowers, cooking, scrapbooking, sewing, photography...I guess I love too many things, LOL
I am a blessed and happy person!
here's more of my love of photography, taken on a trip to Italy
On our first night in Rome we stumbled walking on this magnificent piazza, my patient husband sat there watching me for almost an hour while I used different settings in manual to capture a perfect image.  Since this was unplanned I didn't had my tripod with me and here I was improvising, changing the aperture, counting seconds, going back and forth until I was absolutely happy with the results. 
f/11.0   2.5s

This was inside the Vatican, this magnificent spiral staircase is a mirror image to a second one, given to the Vatican by the people of Firenze.  You can see my DH going downstairs, such a cool view!

this serene view is from the bridge that takes you to Castel di Sant'angelo

classic Venezia

with this magnificent view in front of us!

Piazza San Marco from very high ground
I can't wait to see what love means to you, please do share!
I will come back shortly with the Piña Colada winner
