Photo Hunt: Beautiful

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" is how the saying goes. After looking at lots of pictures I have loaded on my computer and moving several of them to my PhotoHunter file --- ones like a red rose, my daughter holding her new born daughter right after birth, breath taking views from Scotland ---I finally decided on a picture. This one. I captured this kiss between my mom and dad in July on her 80th birthday. What can be more beautiful than a kiss for your birthday from the one you love and have spent 61 years with?

Yes, Patsy, that is a beautiful sight. With the tens of thousands of kisses they may have exchanged in 61 years, this one still looks fresh and new. No little peck on the cheek, for them!

What a gorgeous shot!

My grandma died recently at 95 years, and she and my grandfather celebrated their 70th a couple of years ago. We have a similar kiss photo on that date. Very inspiring!
