White roses, blue skies, pretty photos

White roses, blue skies, pretty photos
I don't really enjoy talking landscape photos - I really like taking photos of people and of flowers. Not groups of people, or fields of flowers - rather more interesting and intimate shots; like the one above, and this one, and this one, and this one, and this one.

In a lot of ways I find taking photos of flowers is similar to taking photos of people, woman in particular I guess.

Peachy rose

Peach-coloured rose
This rose reminded me of the first flowers I gave Kerry-Anne - peach-coloured roses on her 19th birthday.

I took this photo at about 17h30, while the light was falling and the air was cooling. It was already icy-cold and that got me wondering exactly how delicate flowers like this manage to survive the cold nights that we've had recently.

Over the years we've had several rose bushes in our garden but for some reason it seems like we're never able to keep them well-tended - they end up looking very "natural" (ie. scraggly and woody). Perhaps some day we'll up our game and treat them like the beauties they are. :)
