A Quiet Beauty by micklyn

Yet ANOTHER portrait of Mila. I know. Monet had his haystacks, didn’t he? Well, Mila is my haystack, and a very sweet and lovely haystack she is.

This is my fourteenth work in my 52 week challenge.

Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/80
Av( Aperture Value ) 2.8
ISO Speed 400
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
