(Anyone else love that song as much as I did in the ’80s?!)

I am no gardener…far from it…but I do have 50 rose bushes at my lens’s disposal :) This one, however (called “Black Beauty”) is hands-down my absolute favourite. Deep red with back velvety tips and inner petals, I think this is as sensual as a rose can be.

    Beautiful image Angie. It’s got me reaching for the red wine! Love it. Well done.

  • I hope that wine went down nice and smooth Jim? I’m happy that my shot inspired a touch of (responsible) drinking!
    I appreciate you coming by, and your kind words, very much :)

    “Love me tender” leaves ‘em cryin’ in the aisle
    The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
    Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for……….

    Great song and great shot. Lighting, DOF, framing. I like it

  • Yeah…sing it with me Marcus! Rock! :)
    Glad you like the song and the shot!
