I am now primarily a digital photographer but with occasional lapses into film. I do minimal image processing except in those cases where I am creating a different piece of art. I am most fascinated by the beauty in everyday scenes and objects.

    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.
