Artist's Description

Quietly, said hello to one of the ladies doing new flower arrangments this day at St.Paul’s Cathedral, fortunately she was happy to have a bit of a chat in between poking and pushing a huge fresh flower arrangement into shape … she’s been doing the flowers for the Church the past thirty years, it can take up to three hours or more to complete one arrangement, depending on the complexity and flowers used … the flower arrangements for Christmas took a team of ten people to complete! :-o
At 1/30th, was lucky to capture this without blur, from her or me ;o)
Her left hand stopped moving long enough for the capture, and I had my elbow propped on my knee … phew!
