Precious Metal

Precious Metal
Saturday Self-Challenge: Metal

There are so many types of metal to choose from, so I took the week to think about what to choose for my subject. In the end I realized that what I wear on my hand is the most precious metal of all, representing life-long commitment to another person. So here are my two bands of metal, worn for 42 years (and counting!). The photo in the background is of our nephew and his beautiful fiance, who will be married later this year.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Special hugs to Pam (hope you are feeling much better!)

Peter G, Xata, Rainer Blankermann, Heide and 43 other people have particularly liked this photo

Hi Val

I really like this, especially the way you have put three things together to make the picture. Such well chosen words too!
I am sure you would do really well as a wedding photographer!!!

Best Wishes, and a good week ahead

Congratulations on your 42 years of being married, Val! My parents were married for 50 years and it was a happy home growing up because of it. Your rings are so precious and nicely photographed.

Sometimes my "bone of contention" is that He created woman in the first place! Relationships can be so hard at times.
