St. Valentine’s Day

In the downtown area of Santa Fe, the parts that date to the early part of the twentieth century, there are quite a lot of hand crafted wrought iron fences and gates. I really like photographing them, and I found this heart-shaped fencing last month and took this photo.

I love the delicate nature of the wrought iron heart  —  with the twists, and then the colors in the background — the red of the adobe wall, the light greens and yellows.

I thought this photo would fit in well on St. Valentine’s Day.

Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/3.2.
