Part of a small series of images called 'Funeral Flowers'.
This, and the other images from this series, hold significant meaning to me. These flowers were from bouquets sent to the family, by friends of my late Mother In-law. She was well respected and loved by the community: she had a heart of gold and went out of her way to help where needed.
I guess, this flower portrait is a way I can remember her, and it also reminds me of all the people who cared for her. A beautiful lady and a beautiful flower.
When I pick up my camera...when I compose the subjects in the frame...and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind: To take a better photograph than the last time.
I have been using a camera as a hobbyist, and then as a freelance professional (starting in 1998), for a total of 39 years: I started photography when I was 12-years old.
I specialize in commissioned Head-Shot Portraits, Photographs of People, and Fine Art Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also create and design fine art, abstract photographs of my own abstract expressionism paintings. As a painter, I love working with alcohol-based permanent ink, acrylic paints, and watercolour pencils.
