12th November is the day of my Mum’s and Dad’s birthday. They were both born on the same day, but in a different year. Though we can’t celebrate it together as my Dad passed away more than twenty years ago and my Mum lives more than a 1000 miles from here, I always think about them, not only on this day. They both gave me everything that I could ever wish for, my life, their love and my passion for photography, travelling and exploring the world around me. This rose is for them both, though it is my Mum’s favourite flower, I am sure that my Dad would buy it for her if he could.
