When did you first learn how to flirt? Chances are it was on Valentine’s Day. Although a manufactured holiday designed to sell greeting cards and candy, I can remember when it used to be important. As a child I would spend a long time agonizing over who received the bigger cards from my Walt Disney collection. As a young man, it was absolutely critical to not be alone on Valentine’s Day.
This picture is a study in flirting dynamics. The young man on the right is clearly with the girl next to him but seems to be trying to win over the young lady in the middle. The guy near the water needs to buy a clue.
Whatever you do have a great Valentine’s Day but don’t fall for that “Must buy candy” ploy!
I published the middle image from this series a couple of years ago and it is a candidate for my work in progress, “Just a Kiss”. However, yesterday while reviewing images I noticed the sequence for the first time. The three pictures were taken in sequence over one minute. In the first the young lady seems to want to have nothing to do with this guy, the image says no..no..NO! The middle is the kiss and the final image, well they both seemed to like it.
