2013 - Deja Vu
Sorry for the long silence, it was caused by a repeat of last years health problems with Tina. This time she was carried off by the Ambo's 3 days before Christmas with acute stomach cramps and after reducing and isolating the pain and doing multiple tests, the relief surgeon was called in at 5pm Christmas day to operate taking a section of small intestine and leaving a most impressive scar. On the table for 5+ hours and in Hi dependency for over a week she's now progressing from her bed to walking first with a walking aid and today with a stick. Encouraged by the Physio.
So, as with last year Christmas was a non events though our daughter Tracey catered for her in-laws and our family but by early afternoon I gave my apologies and went home mentally exhausted.. I have been forcing myself to do some creative work but the spirits not in it at the moment. This image I completed a few days ago and I'm still not sure of it though friends have had nice things to say.
These tiny flowers are very tricky to photograph in any meaningful way, I resorted to digging one up and mounting it in front of a red vase that was handy and produced a pleasing contrast. Perhaps because the roots were still in place it didn't instantly wilt as usually happens and I was able to make a multi focus image which gave the sharpness of both flower and leaves.
Hope you like it!
