All Right - Fly Amid the Rain Drops - Peony Garden
The light was right. The conditions were right (sunshine and very little breeze after a night of heavy rain). The time was right (with the visit from the tiny colorful fly - hope it didn't drown in any of the bigger drops.).
DP171-2015 Posted Saturday, June 20
My friend is still 'incarcerated' in a care/rehabilitation facility, where I visit him several times a day. He only got his arm out of his sling a few days ago, and can now begin to make better progress in getting back on his feet. He used a walker before the fall, and without two good arms, that's not an option. He is still quite helpless for many of the basic tasks we all take for granted. He fell four weeks ago today. I decided to post a regular DP today and will try very hard to carve out an hour or so this evening for leaving comments to others' photos. I have very little time to take or process new photos, and will only post on days where I feel I will have time to leave at least some comments. Thanks to all of you who have left messages of support. You know who you are. I want you to know how very much I appreciated each one.
