I think that I might like this shot better than the one from a couple of days ago.

It is never JUST ANOTHER, because they are beautiful, and I love your soft macros, and I especially love the green about-to-be bud, the shape is wonderful :)

@Lorraine: Thanks, Lorraine. Soft blossoms make the most beautiful conversions to B&W.

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

I've never 'met' a yellow rose I didn't like, and each one causes me to think of my mother; they were her favorite.
She's been gone 30+ years and your rose brings back her memory very acutely!

22 Jun 2009 11:34am

@Judy: Thanks, Judy; that warms my heart.

Lesley from Lincoln, United States

I like it better -- probably because it's a single rose rather than a bouquet.
Yellow roses always make me think of my daughter who is living in Texas.

Hope you had a nice visit with my dad & June!

22 Jun 2009 11:38am

@Lesley: We've had a great time; lots of catching up to do.

Hello my friend. I feel like I have been so distant over the past month or so...sorry.

A yellow rose is my favorite of all. Even as a child I remember just gazing at yellow roses. They reminded me of "happy" for some reason.

This is a vibrant and stunning image.

I hope you're off to a great start for the week.

22 Jun 2009 1:51pm

@Tammy-Cricket: Thanks, Tammy. This is going to be a full week. Friends are here and are leaving today. Other friends are coming tomorrow for a visit. Wednesday we take care of Fiona. Friday is Fiona's 3rd birthday; I leave that evening for Portland. Saturday is an all day workshop in Portland on lighting. Then next Sunday is Fiona's BD party. Busy, busy, but the weather is supposed to be terrific.

"Another" beauty that is. I love how the light hits the stem just below the rose. Your images are the best and only way to preserve their beauty.
Excellent quote.
