What Remains by Debbie Shirley

I'm finding that I tend to enjoy working from flowers when they are wilting or dead...they seem to gain so much character at that point. I hope that others appreciate my own "character" as I get older, too!

I also enjoy photographing flowers in their prime. I believe there's beauty in every stage and a certain richness to petals that are beginning to wither & drop. It says a lot about how we approach our own aging process too, don't you think?

I turned 60 last summer and love this stage of life!
