And they stood beneath the tree of hearts
And they watched their feelings grow
And they swore they’d never be apart.
True love left its mark on the tree of hearts

This amazing heart shaped knothole is nestled into a tree at Washington Park. I discovered it when I was at the park doing my ‘shadow play’ series earlier in the month and I knew I wanted to go back and photograph it for Valentine’s Day. I just love the curvy, free-form shape and the ripples and wrinkles that curl upon themselves like a cinnamon roll. Simply beautiful!
