You Are Sweet!

OCTOBER 2005 – A traditional Bavarian gingerbread heart carries the German text ‘Du bist süß’ (‘You’re Sweet’). © Mark Zanzig/

The story behind the image

A shot from a wedding. The couple had arranged the wedding following a traditional Bavarian theme, including the decoration of the restaurant. This gingerbread heart hung over the bar. While not exclusively Bavarian, many people associate it with the Oktoberfest in Munich (which was also the intention of this couple.)

The writing says “Du bist süß” in German – “You’re Sweet” in English – and I like the blurred warm background. I think this is a good match for Valentine’s Day 2022.
