Ivy Heart

As we approach Valentine's Day, our gray winter world is brightened by a preponderance of red and pink, mostly in the form of hearts. The heart shape is all around us all year long. Metal workers like the heart's curving bilateral symmetry. Study an iron gate, a fence, a fancy metal door and hearts will appear among the spirals and curls. I found this heart in a double door. After playing with the hue and saturation, it is now a lacy valentine from me to you.
