We have really enjoyed all our new rose bushes this summer- but this one is our favorite. We love the variety of shades that the roses turn as they bloom.
I’m very glad we’ve planted rosebushes that we can see from our kitchen window- mostly because they have created a pleasing view, But the other reason, of course, is that they are beautiful subjects for photography!
More backyard photography! My new rosebushes and digital frames are making me happy despite all the Covid worries!
To give ourselves something to focus on beside the virus, we planted six rosebushes this year. I can see them out the kitchen window, and they cheer me up! I have always loved roses (doesn’t everyone?), but I have never wanted them in my yard until now. Good timing.
A rose for today.
After last night’s dinner, we drove downtown, parked and took a short walk through an older neighborhood. As we strolled along, we couldn’t help but notice the beautiful flowers in many gardens. The sun was starting to set, so I took a few shots in the pretty light. A nice way to spend an hour!
Just a book and a rose. . .
Here are a couple more tea time still life images from my shoot earlier in the week.
I was in the mood for still life yesterday, but wasn’t inspired by the current prompt (music). Ideas were swirling around in my head, but just swirling, not yet in focus. I decided to look to my Flickr Daily Challenge group (which is becoming a monthly challenge for me these days. . .) for ideas, and found that one of the topics is Tea Time- a perfect still life topic. I have many tea cups inherited from my grandmother which I am aways intending to photograph, and I had a single rose- so the still life easily came together.
Here are two of the images- I’ll probably post a couple more later in the week. The top photo was edited with one of Kim Klassen’s Lightroom presets (kk_today), and the second was without a preset.
Linking up today with Texture Tuesday.
