My daughter was given a bunch of roses for her birthday by her school friends, which included a Rainbow Rose (click to see the dyeing process invented by the Dutch), as well as some other artificially coloured ones. Interestingly as they were dying, they dried out very nicely in one piece. I was fascinated by the texture and the shapes so I kept them behind to take some shots.
