Autumn

My apologies to my followers for not responding to your lovely comments on my recent posts. I promise I will be back on deck & scouring through your wonderful blogs again shortly.

Losing one of my dear friend's children last Monday has taken it's toll on myself & my children.

I have struggled to find the joy I usually get from taking photos, even though my husband has taken me out on photography day trips to cheer me up. Editing my images has also been particularly difficult over the last week. The funeral is tomorrow (well today actually as it's 2am here) and I hope that the Celebration of his wonderful but short life tomorrow will bring some kind of closure.

Sorry for the seriousness of this post - most of my followers are used to my photography being the main theme of my blog. I leave you with some images I took a couple of weeks ago. This is Autumn in my sub tropical part of the world.

Your photos have a beautiful melancholy. Do hope shared grief helps in some way.

It's not an easy thing and many people wouldn't even consider fooling with their blog. On the other hand, it is a way to take your mind off things. I hope you find peace soon. These are lovely shots, Liz!

So hard to lose a child whether it's yours or not, and considering they are close friends makes it even harder. I hope and pray for healing balm for your heart and your friends hearts

I'm so sorry for this loss - mothers day for your friend is probably going to feel like a cruel joke this year. You must be feeling so heavy with this sadness. I hope as you say, that the funeral will provide a sense of closure.
