I walked up the hill behind the house today. Rather less strenuous than yesterday but good for the waistline. I have a few nice bug shots but I am trying to ID them before I launch them on the blog. Instead here is a consoling flower.This was taken with the 56mm F1.2 portrait lens on my new Fuji X-T1.
Why consoling? Well whilst I was out my phone beeped at me and Pavlov’s reaction kicked in and I checked to see what it was. An old friend and colleague was letting us all know that his cancer treatment has run its course and he has no more options. His horizon is 3-6 months. He seemed to be doing so well and then this. At times like this I need nature to reaffirm my faith in the world.
