Breaking the rules, because the center is all blur and the only focus is at the edges… but I like it, anyway. I love the big blurry circle that is the backside of the central daisy. : )

Finally another (very late) work to add to my 52 week challenge. This is number 27. Life has been getting in the way of my photography lately, but hopefully not forever.

Camera Model Canon EOS 600D
Shooting Mode Manual Exposure

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.
