Marc took a few videos while we were in Iceland. I published them on my YouTube channel today. I’ll add these to the appropriate posts as well.
In honor of my mother Noel Estelle James (married name Davies) — December 20, 1919 Perth, Australia – October 10, 2018 Sydney, Australia.
Noel loved people and loved to laugh. She led a colorful life, the details of which would make a terrific script for a movie. I plan to write down what I can remember. I was unable to attend my mother funeral which was in Sydney, Australia on October 18th. My relative, Warren, said that it was a lovely service and people laughed at parts and my brother in-in-law Grant read several eulogies, including my son’s and husband’s, and showed a slide show of photographs. I heard they were unable to play my eulogy (slide show). So, I’ll share it with you all instead. Coincidentally, it’s my birthday today—I’ll have it tomorrow instead.
I captured the Hibiscus photograph at Governors Island on July 22. Four of us rented a Surrey there and pedaled around the flat parts of the island. It was delightfully cool and breezy. I had little time for photography.
Three versions of a Hibiscus I created in Photoshop CC 2018. Warning, it’s a little startling!
