There's flowers in my hair

I was very happy with the result of this photo, as well as not having the need to edit it (as the light of the afternoon was on my side.)  It was only just starting to rain, the few droplets that caught in my mum's hair reflecting light, as well as the effect of the little droplet on my camera screen - I'm definitely proud of this photo, and it had been so much fun running around the property finding different flowers to put in her hair. After collecting some from weeds (such as the pea flower), different types of grass, paw-paw trees, and flowers from the garden, put together,  I had all sorts of different flowers and colours to work with.

It didn't take too long to plait my mum's hair with the flowers, and then when I finished I grabbed my much loved new camera and took her out onto our veranda to get a couple of shots.

I'm still sorting through the photos from my shoot with my darling god-sister, Jazz (which I mentioned in my previous post) and am finding it hard to choose what photos to put up.
I haven't been able to do an outfit post recently (after failed attempts at shoots and because of the obnoxious rain that pours down every time I turn my camera on) but will hope to do a shoot with my sister, Ireland, soon. Well, that's all for now - the idea of curling up in a shawl with a cup of tea and a book is calling to me.
