Everyone is the age of their heart . . . by Rosalie Dale

Everyone is the age of their heart . . . by 

I turned up at Swanes Rose Nursery only to find their blooms all either rotting and dead, or having lost their ‘heads’ altogether! So, I did what any self respecting photographer would do – took over 100 shots of withered and dead roses! I must confess I find some of the decaying blooms attractive in their own right.

Blended with a photo of rust here in CS3 to add to the aged look.

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’!!!

  • Thanks for adding this to your favourites Satwant. I get a real surprise often when I look in the mirror – I still think I’m about 30 years younger than I am!!! :)

    Great work! The texture is just right…well roses only have a few days life span so even if this rose’s days are over, there is so much life left when you leave this bit and it produces more seeds….!

  • I have a container full of dried roses Taschja – they are so beautiful. They do appear from time to time in my still life pics as they seem to add something winsome and nostalgic to a scene! Thanks for the kind words.
