Mothers' Day, originally uploaded by John the Monkey.

One of the themes I'm fascinated by in photography is the idea that one can impart knowledge without showing the obvious representations of the idea being communicated.

I took this shot in March, and it's of a simple planter that my daughter made for my wife. They have always been close, but my wife's illness last year seems to have cemented the bond between them in a new way, and invariably the bulk of Katie's creative output is dedicated to her mother.

If this shot conveys anything, I hope it's something of that bond between mother and daughter.
