... and beauty are the most common attributes of the red rose and so it is. A good friend gave a bouquet of roses to Corky when she returned home from the hospital last week and I decided to take a shot at photographing them. I have found the red rose to be one of the most difficult of all flowers to get a good image of; there are so many subtle shades and tones in the rose. So this was a good day for shooting roses for me and I got a number of images I like ... here is one of my favorites and it is a gift now shared with you. There is a Japanese adage that the scent of the flower remains on the hands of the one who gives the flower, so our friend now has a lifetime of rose scent on her hands ... and she is a very nice person too.
A lot of work completed today and more to come tomorrow. Corky continues to make some headway and had sips of coffee this morning, cream of celery soup at noon and some puree carrots this evening. She and a friend headed out for some shopping and a manicure but a change in plans when Corky's wheelchair misbehaved. Oh well, I think I have at least a temporary fix in place now.
Busy day coming up, but it will be started with a pan roasted Brazilian Bob O Link coffee ... rich chocolate undertones ... can't come soon enough.
Enjoy the day, live the day and may your hands be infused with the scent of the rose at days end.
