The last days were tumultuous to say the least and while I found a little solace in the soothing green yesterday, it is this sunflower today.
A friend brought it by today to cheer my husband and me up. I was so touched by this gesture that I decided to show you this flower in all its beauty. I intended to take a macro of it for Macro Friday (as Macro Friday was so much fun last week) but all my shots were absolutely disappointing - blurred in a very unattractive way despite using my tripod! However, I had set my mind on shooting this flower today and couldn't find an apt substitute. And although I'm not totally satisfied with my photo today I wanted to post it as a "thank you" to our friend. I cropped it a little bit on the right side and touched it up a bit with a texture to give its beauty credit that somehow doesn't show in the picture as I wanted it to.
I wish you a happy weekend and always a good friend at your side.
