And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

A blossom becoming...Lovely focus on the opening flower against that dark rich almost wholly black background. A dramatic and tender presentation.

Is this a tribute ?... I feel something very deep in this simplicity... beyond words... and the title moves me, so pure too, brings me back to childhood... I won't say more... I love the emotion I feel... Big kisses, my dear*

@k@: Thank you K. No, this is not a tribute, although it was going to be. The photo before this one is the tribute :)
Actually I didn't realize this was up for 'posting' at AM3, I've been so busy with work I was not paying attention.

The quote and the feel of your photo really go hand in hand. I very much like the way she( Anaïs ) expressed the urgency to be.
