Shades of blue

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 8 November 2012 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I am at the Quarterdeck Cafe in Narooma. Here, Maureen enjoys a family lunch. It is an image we would like to share with you for World Diabetes Day. Maureen has lived with Diabetes for all her adult life.

The deck is a beautiful spot. It looks out over the clear blue of the water. I like all the hues of blue you can see. Very appropriate, I thought, as blue is the official colour of Diabetes awareness.

a tough call but at least treatment exists. I suspect may of us would not have survived very long in an earlier age. I know I wouldn't. Nice portrait and I trust, nice wine :)
