Balu - in France

By JuBarney
Best viewed small!

Many many thanks for the well wishes for Balu. She is doing really well after her cruciate ligament operation on Thursday and started walking today, almost normally, which is a great relief.

This was a grab shot taken beside a river in France two years ago and the strange BG is the water (to which I have done nothing!) but I love the effect; not very sharp but I love the image and hope you do.

Thrilled with the response to my Snipe, with special thanks to Dave (HobbitDave), Lynne (DrighLynne) and Isabel (Chinga) for their much appreciated UAs.

Exceptional pose! Clever Balu! I love the way you've captured this with the soft focus, looks like an Old Master painting rather than a photo (I was actually going to congratulate you on your impressive painting skills!) I ruptured my ACL a couple of years back, so I very much sympathise with Balu. Best Wishes Helen 😃
