Singles Awareness Day

This photo series is aimed to highlight the side-effect holiday known as "Singles Awareness Day'.  Although, reviewing the photos included it appears this is a celebration of the indulgence of chocolate.  ...Isn't that what being single is all about at the end of the day?  There is a range of emotions here from our Valentine Celebrant/Birthday Girl.  It is up to the viewer to interpret the emotion of these photos.

To me, Valentines Day/Singles Awareness day shouldn't be a day where you should feel bad for being single.  It should be a celebration of it.  And if you have a special somebody....it should be the only day out of the year that you let that person know you care about them....because you can only love so much....and now you have 3 months to prepare a last minute gift to let your mother know you love her.  one thing at a time!

behind the scenes note:  The reason for monochrome and color photos is because I had an unfinished roll of black and white film in my camera prior to this shoot....so I brought a second camera loaded with color....because colors.
