40 years ago today Tony and I came back from our honeymoon and went to Pauline and Dave's wedding. Two weeks earlier Dave had been the photographer for our wedding. We met them both at college. Tony and Dave both had motorbikes and were studying maths. Pauline and I were both studying to be primary school teachers and we shared a room in the second year. We have been close friends through the years of raising our families and have supported each other through tough times. There's only one problem with our friendship now - they moved to Australia, and so its harder keeping in touch
This is one of my Ruby Wedding roses.
I'm never happy working with red flowers - the camera never seems to get the colour right and I'm never happy with the colour on the monitor - so this is version 3 of trying to get the colours as I wanted them. I used just 1 rose, and layered a section of it for the background. I also wanted it small, so have put a deep black border around it and given it a black background.
It will not be to the liking of many, but hey ho, I took all evening to sort it last night and it would be good to get it up on their anniversary, bearing in mind that it is 16:35 there already
Have a lovely day Pauline and Dave
Thanks for looking
