Swanes Rose Nursery here in Sydney held a photographic competition for Mothers Day … this image didn’t receive an official ‘gong’ but they did request permission to use it in future publications for the Nursery. Better than nothing!

I suffer from viewfinder vision (find myself visualising a frame around everything I see) so my genre is “anything that moves and most things that don’t”!!

I don’t so much wish to document places and things, as to evoke feeling and emotion.

This leads to a diverse portfolio and constantly overloaded external hard drives…not to mention some burning of the midnight oil as I keep looking for that elusive perfect process for yet another ‘masterpiece’!!!

    Fantastic DOF Rosalie, wonderful :)

  • Not easy to photograph a rose bush – one of the categories in the comp – so tried to just focus on one rose and ‘suggest’ the rest by having them out of focus. Thanks John for the kind words.
