Theme ;  Challenge TheThreeMuses /  ALONE
Sometimes you need to walk alone, just to show you can.
A self-portrait.....
with a glimpse of my beloved Murphy, who died two weeks ago, in front of me
I've blended three photos and played a little with gradients and curves in Photoshop to achive a rather vintage colored look.

Botanical ferns = riandesign / And a photo of "MOI" !

Very touchy, Rian. I love the vintage look and the fact that you did a self-portrait.

Oh, Rian, typing this through tears again just caught up with your sad news after being away for a over a week. What a poignant piece, I really feel for you with having a little dog too, so I will leave you with these words so apt for your piece -
Those we love do not go away
they walk beside us everday,
Unseen, unheard, but always near
still loved, still missed and very dear.
Hugs, Judy
