Photographer's Note

The association of mid-February with Love and Fertility dates back to the Antiquity.
--In Greek Athens, the period going from mid-January to mid-February was dedicated to the sacred union of Zeus and Hera.
--In early Middle Ages, mid-February used to be the celebration of lone people, and not of loving couples. On the day, the young ladies would hide around their villages, waiting for the young bachelors to find them.
After this giant Hide-and-seek game, the newly-formed couples were to marry before the end of the year!
That's why I chose to post the wedding photo of this loving young couple.
