Mother love

My dear mother is sick in hospital at the moment, and I am not sure what the future holds for her......so I send her this rose with love.......
And my heart to my father and embrace them with my love during the days ahead for them both......

I am linking up to Texture Tuesday at Kim's Cafe. I have just started doing a couple of texture and layers classes with Kim at Kim's Cafe - please go to her site and visit Kim and the other talented contributors - you might like to take a class too - Kim's Cafe

To this image I have applied a levels adjustment, two of Kim's textures called "providence" and "embrace", and adjusted the words with a "soft light" adjustment.  Basic I know, but I have only just started learning.


  1. Beautiful rose and the edit is so elegant.
    I hope your mother will be better.

  2. I look at your light box pictures and I really need to have that. I love specially the flower shots. What kind of lamps did you used or do you have like professional flashes also!

  3. sooooo very beautiful... LOVE....

  4. Beautiful photo Jill. I hope all works out well for both your parents and yourself too.

  5. if mom is young mom, middle age mom or old mom, the day moms day relates to all moms.
