From the get go of this weeks photo challenge I had a sentimental something in mind.
I took the theme ” Lost in the details” to a bit of a different place as I happen to do often.
To most people this is a photo of a happy little colourful pansy plant.
Look a little closer and you will see come cute little faces in the flowers.
And we have only just touched the surface of the details……
Firstly, this photo was taken to test my new camera which I was very excited about.
Delve deeper and I will tell you that I planted this pansy in memory of a dear friend who very tragically passed away last year.
Not to get carried off in the sadness of the loss, there is a little humour ” lost in the details”…..
My “dear departed” friend was a towering, earthy man with a cracking sense of humour. He loved nature, conversation and gardening.
He also loved to make fun of us often, as we did him.
The fragile pretty girly pansy would most likely make him thank me for the mockery of his masculineness, quickly followed by some form of abusive insult – and a lot of laughter.
“Pansies for Paul” – a nice piece of alliteration and perfectly fitting on so many levels……
A good story, like a good photo, lays in the details.
