Study of a Rose


Back in March I had a macro lens for a few days and enjoyed looking at a rose from various angles. I loved the fact that the edges had already started to wilt a little. I feel like it gives some character to the flower in much the way wrinkles can make for a more interesting face.

Truthfully, roses are not one of my favorite flowers. Not for any particular reason and even as I write this I look around and notice two vases in my house full of little miniature breeds. They have their own sort of loveliness though and yellow roses always make me think of my grandmother.

What about you? Are roses a particular favorite or some other flower?
