"The Unbearable Lightness of Being" - weekly challenge

So it is Monday today, which means the dead line for of the weekly challenge. This weeks theme was a creation inspired by the Milan Kundera's book "The Unbearable Lightness of Being"(chosen by this week's boss HeliS).

I have always enjoyed photographing. I‘ve got my first camera when I was 10 (I think) and I’ve been taking pictures non-stop ever since :) First it was just a hobby, when later on it became of necessity for my jewelry business as well. I’ve got lots of positive responses about pictures that I take for my jewelry so it was only a matter of time before I would collect the courage, take the plunge and start posting my digital work :) and so I’m at the last step now…Mandalas was easy, most of us still have that little kid inside who is amazed by the kaleidoscope pictures :) Posting my nature shots is much harder because there are so many amazing Photo artists out there and I don’t really think I’m at their level yet, but maybe with your help and critique I will get there some day :)

Anyway, here is my entry... "Unbearable Lightness" - a macro shot of beautiful Snowdrop flowers that I took last spring ( cant wait for this spring to come, now when I have a new camera! :) I felt that tiny white flower-drops was a perfect interpretation of "Lightness", yet they seems to be just a bit too heavy or "Unbearable" for the plant to keep them up towards the sun...
