18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

taken on color film, I enhanced the blemishes on all but the center bit of petals that made a heart-shape, which I cleaned up. I was having a difficult time with my mother. Peonies are a favorite flower of hers so to meditate on the relationship I took pictures of peonies in the Seattle P-Patch community garden I belonged to.
