The Pure and Simple Truth by TeaPhotography The Pure and Simple Truth by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to my good friend Sinje :iconvampirbiene: for her BIRTHDAY which was on May 8th!
:cake: :party:

I have known Sinje for seeminly EVER here on dA, ;)
and she is one truly fabulous and caring person, a brilliant artist, and I've had the honour and priviledge to work beside her in our group of
#Unframed-Nature for a few years by now!
She is truly a phenomenal Administrator! :heart:

Those who know me best, know that I DO love ALL flowers...
but one HUGE reason why Azaleas and Rodedendrons, in general, are so special to me, is because when we moved by the coast they were just EVERYWHERE, and had previously been a flower, I had not thought too much about.

But on our very own property we have them in ALL sizes, from tiny bushes, to HUGE gigantic trees taller than our rooftop, and they are in EVERY colour imaginable, and varigated, too!

Though we have them in all colours, I really feel drawn to the white ones! :D

A feature of Sinje's work:

[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

Oh Tea!!! I adored rhododendrons when I was a child. They grow prolifically in a place where we used to go for holidays (vacations) and I miss them so much now I live in Australia. They just don't grow in my part of Oz at all :( But I am always drawn to white flowers too - isn't it amazing? Maybe they draw the peaceful souls toward them?

Very beautiful! I have flowers just like this outside of my house, but they are pink =) Do you know what these are called? Oh, and if I may ask, what editing software do you use? I really like the border and the slight "holga" effect (minus the black and white)

Dear Sinje,
It is no problem at all for being "late"! :huggle:
I think it is my middle name, lately! :giggle:
Anyway, I'm just so happy you do like this,
and I am glad to hear how you like Azaleas to begin with! :aww:
Yes, we are literally surrounded by them. :D

It has been such a pleasure to know you, and be friends with you for so long by now, too.

Thank YOU, for everything. :heart:

As you may recall, I e-mail my wife a flower photograph every morning as a small way of saying "I love you."

I have sent her some of your work before, and this morning I sent her this beautiful picture. You continue to be a part of our love story. [link]

Awwww... yes, I do recall you using my work to send to your wife in the past- it's a story I can never foreget, and I have been honoured, as I am again now!
Thank you... and I hope she will love it. :heart:
