I've had this image on the EHD for ages. Other than a few record shots for my own use, I really haven't taken much in the way of photos of late. Perhaps the weather which has been cold, wild, grey and wet recently has just added to it but feel a bit uninspired at the moment! Anyway, this was part of a beautiful bouquet I received and which I wanted to hold onto the memory of for longer than any flower would last. Surely one of the best reasons for the use of any camera?

The gift of a bouquet of flowers just has to be photographed so that you can cherish the memory of it for ever.
I hope you find something that will inspire you to start using your camera again.
