Tumultuous Days



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.

I think this is beautiful! We all have off days. I find myself excited about certain shots only to upload them and realize none of them are really that great at all. Just try again.

What a beautiful shot and also a lovely way to pay tribute to the friend. :) I so sorry to hear things have been tumultuous & hope the weekend brings some deserved calm! (And always lovely to see your presence no matter when.)
