On the day I took this photo I was ‘hanging by a thread’ myself…experiencing a lot of pain. I was not sure it would ever go away.

But there you have it…..the pain has nearly gone….the water droplet has definitely gone…but the image remains. It will remind me that even when things are tough beauty exists.

As taken!

    I have a crystal that looks exactly like it, only it isn’t hanging from a leaf.. I love the colours in the background, it looks painted, almost as if I can see the paint strokes brilliant artwork!

  • That is so nice. I am very pleased to have my work seen as ‘art’. Thank you very much :)
