It is early on a Sunday morning, the children are all sleeping still, the sky is overcast, grey and gloomy, but I have this, glowing from my screen, lifting my spirits and just generally making me happy. : )

Taken with my Canon EOS 600D
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/640
Av( Aperture Value ) 2.8
ISO Speed 400
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM

Processed in Photoshop CS2 using my own textures.

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.
