A single stem....

By ColleenA
I am currently away in Durban looking after my mom while my sister is in hospital, on my way back from a visit to the hospital yesterday I picked this flower and photographed it when I got home. I used the ink painting effect on my camera to capture the image, first time I have tried it.

Hope things are good for you in Durban and not too hot Grin A very artistic presentation; I don't think my camera can do that. I love the simplicity of it.

Wow Colleen this is absolutely fabulous and that has nothing to do with the TV show. Really well done I think this is one of your better pieces of work. Your presentation is first class...John
