    Nancy's Rose

    I take this shot every year..in Nancy's garden.

    It changes with the seasons, evolves with the years but it is always 'Nancy's Rose' and I look forward to it.

    Roses are frequently photographed; but in my opinion, they rarely work well. However, this shot, and from that angle, has something which most rose photos seem unable to capture.

    Thanks Geoff.

    When I got fit enough after the Cancer surgery I explored my world bit by little bit...strength allowing

    This bloom was in my neighbours garden and still is now...we are survivors , both altered ..both older.. but mostly..both still here!

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Nancy's Rose

    Beside the lovely rose, what I really appreciate is the story behind the shot. I always believe that every image we take is a reflection of our inner self and how we feel at certain moments in time, Sharon. I somehow was able to understand why you tried to keep the delicacy of the rose on your image instead of pumping up the color, saturation, and sharpness as all of us might probably recommend to you. I hope you are feeling better now. Continue to use your photography as a tool for your recovery as it did on mine.

    Kind regards,

    Jiro

    Nice, I like it Sharon. A change from the textures you have been using in post processing.

    Thanks Joe.......I only use textures or PP if i feel they have something to add to the story

    Nancy's rose is an annual event and can stand alone.

    Sharon,
    An inspiring photo. Thank you for sharing it.
    (And, writing as someone who tries to grow roses, it was nice to see no sign of bugs or black spot on your neighbour's rose!)
