Beauty in Decay/26 (Worn Out)

I was going to title this “Worn out and Weary”, as that is how I have been feeling recently…. I have been absent from blogging for almost a month (although from time to time I have checked my reader to see what others are posting).

Today I am allowing myself the luxury of posting, but my blog activity may well be sporadic for the foreseeable future.

This image was the last of the Japanese anemone shots I took in August (but never got around to posting), and by this time the flower was quite dessiccated, noticeable in the very skinny shrunken stem…


Now that the light is no longer as strong, I shall need to find other ways of creating these images. Another challenge, when I have some time.


  1. Sorry to hear you have been unwell. I hope things improve for you as I have selfishly missed your photos. Again, love the texture in this one.

    • Thanks for your thoughts, Jude…I am not exactly unwell, just had a lot on, very stressed and now quite fatigued so I need to take it a bit easier…I don’t want to be in the bottom of the pit and unable to get out! If you’ve missed my photos, I must be doing something right….

  2. Grateful for what you can manage, Sue, when you can manage it.

  3. Great image, Sue. Lovely to see you again. 🙂

  4. Suzanne

    Truly beautiful image Sue – I hope you find the balance between things you have to do in the world, resting and finding time to take your wonderful photos – they are an inspiration 🙂

    • Thank you, Suzanne….your comment re my photos does lift my spirit 🙂

      • Suzanne

        I’m so glad to hear it Sue. I love your photographic work – particularly the ‘beauty in decay’ series. – I find that work quite brilliant actually and I hope you continue to make images even though the light has changed.

  5. I’ve also missed your posts, but completely understand stress and not having time to post. Take care of yourself!

  6. Glad you had a laugh at the latest post on my blog, Sue. Looks like you needed it! Poor little dejected anemone – very beautiful though 🙂

  7. The picture of death. Flowers live as people, but faster.

  8. Take it easy, Sue. Thanks for reaching out 🙂

  9. We all need to take a break and times and refresh. This is such a stunning image, beautiful light!

  10. Yet again, another nice photo, and the light is working for you. It plays well with the fuzzy texture and very gentle pink. I like how this one is pendant, different. 😀
