Ode to Valentine
I took the bus into town yesterday evening to capture the Valentine's Day lovers. Givers or receivers of flowers were all about. The queue at Haigh's Chocolates was enormous and people were diving into buckets of long stemmed red roses on street corners. They loitered at famed meeting spots, spoils in hand and lit up when their lovers arrived. Buskers had moved in with a vengeance. And yes, it was probably all commercially driven but there was tenderness on the streets and a warmer than usual atmosphere.

Jessica in Pitt Street Mall has the most spectacular bunch of flowers. He must have spent a fortune. Me thinks a proposal might on the cards. Did it happen, Jessica?
I tell her she looks gorgeous - she dressed for an office occasion today and is on her way home.
