366 Challenge 93: Feminine


I love taking photographs of roses. This rose, my daughter received for her 3rd birthday in July. I think a pink rose is quite a good theme for the feminine theme, it's delicate, feminine and it stands strong. It's petals has a remarkable ability to collect water and therefore, it's a very selfsufficient and intelligent flower. All the characteristics you would wish your daughter to possess as she grows up.

Today, while the boys of the family are driving through Denmark, we are going to have a mother-daughter day. I hope that you are having a great day too!

Beautiful photo, Mia! I'm going to try and catch up on people's Blogs, but right now I'm tackling accommodation problems (I'm sure you've had your own fair share).

I've still not got a contract for the flat I agreed to, and I'm seriously considering scrapping it. So I'll be looking for a room again - if you hear of anywhere, if any friends of yours have a room to let, will you give me a shout? I'm asking anyone I know in London if they hear of a room, I'm searching online, and somewhere, there has to be a room!

Mia, what a beautiful image and perfect for the theme. Sounds like a beautiful day ahead - for all of you!

Perfect work on this rose, the DOF is excellent while keeping the rose soft.

Dogeared: Been there, done that! I completely feel for you, it's SO stressful when trying to find somewhere to live and it doesn't go anywhere. The market at the moment isn't exactly helping..

We don't have any extra rooms for rent, but we have rooms, which we don't use at the moment (we haven't furnished the whole house yet and it will be office and for training and we don't even have the training equipment yet!), so if you need a short term solution, you are more than welcome to stay with us. Just give me a shout.
