Friendship

This photo was taken in a dimly lit restaurant, camera propped up on a wine glass, slow shutter speed, and back lit with a candle. It was hard lighting to achieve a bright photo, but I persisted.
It made me think of how good friends and flowers are a lot alike... their beauty always shines through, even when days are dark.

"A real friend is one who overlooks your broken down gate, and admires the flowers in your garden!" Unknown

Buy a bouquet of flowers and enjoy their beauty!
yes, it is wonderfully taken
so very pretty

This shot shouts 'life' and 'celebrations' ~ I am a big fan of all of these colors. This would be a beautiful note card.
