For Helena by micklyn

This is for my friend, Helena, who is a woman of courage, creativity and generosity. She is loving, talented, faithful and smart – an inspiration to many.

Plumbago shot with my Canon EOS 600D
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/200
Av( Aperture Value ) 2.8
ISO Speed 200
Lens EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM
Edited in Photoshop 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.
