Your pictures: Love
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "Love".
Doris Enders submitted this photograph of heart shaped balloons in the air.
Tibor Acs: "Love padlocks on the Szechenyi Chain Bridge in Budapest. This is one of the most beautiful bridges in Hungary."

Helen Jane Holman: "A bond between a musician and their instrument is truly a special kind of love. I fall in love with him every time I see his passion when he plays."
Jon Ames: "A loving swan couple at Kochelsee, south of Munich, in the shadow of the Bavarian Alps. To secure the heart of his pen, the cob fought off a hopeful male with a spectacular air and water chase - clearly she was delighted with his success."
Angela Burton: "Here is a photo of a statue, for me you can feel the love between a mother and her child, even though it is carved from marble."
Ian Salisbury: "Elephants have many human traits and, in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park, they show their affection with suitably romantic trunk hugs."
This photograph of a very public proposal was taken by Alice Bedford at the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
And finally a photograph by Carol Chan of lots of locks. The next theme is "Splash" and the deadline for your entries is 21 February.
