I am an imagist with a fascination for seeing the extraordinary in every-day objects and sights.I still use film occasionally and still have a love of black & white photography.
Very neat. I have a lot of roses that I have kept after they dry up. Never thought of photographing them. What a beautiful idea.~!
Treasure those dried up blossoms. They can be so beautiful. A great teacher in how to age and become more beautiful. Roses – perhaps symbolically – seem to be the best. I do have entire arrangements cluttering my shelves, some going back 10 years.
Even without the macro approach, these flowers make a wonderful study.
