    So perfectly clear and the lighting is just right for this great capture. Great dedication to your mother and tell her this Manon.
    Age is mind over matter
    If you don’t mind
    It doesn’t matter!

    There’s beauty and there’s inner beauty…none of us like the way we look, but everyone sees you differently…the ones who think they are beautiful, do not look good to others as their conceit makes them look lesser than they look…but the ones who do not like their looks usually are more noticeable because they shine in the eyes of the onlookers…Age is beauty & respect no matter who you are…Yes, your mother is so wrong!!!

  • thanks for thinking just like me. I try to convince her but nothing to do. thank you dear ;)

    Beautiful! I am always drawn to fading flowers. They are so interesting and they are getting ready to give over to a new generation, like people.

  • exactly! thank you AuntDot ;)

    Wonderful composition and color, Manon. I like the use of the surrounding dark tones to highlight the pod.

  • I have to admit I was very happy with the light here. I’m happy that you like it too. thanks sir ;)
