Gathering Hearts

"Aimer, ce n'est pas se regarder l'un l'autre, c'est regarder ensemble dans la même direction."

"Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction." 

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,1939

Over the past year I have been collecting hearts. My favourite is this one. I found it while giving my daughter a leg up onto a tree in Parc Monceau. I would never have seen it without the leg up.
Easier to find are the ones hidden in the bark of Parisian trees.

Then there are leaf ones.
Red ones...
Edible hearts.

Chalk heart.
Sacré Cœur's heart balancing act.
And finally another of my favourites, the puddle heart. Only noteworthy in the rain.
Oh! Look what my amoureux just brought me.
More hearts can be found here (thumbnails) and here (slide show)
