Raindrops on Roses
I don’t grow roses. I don’t know why, but I never have. I think it is possibly my aversion to maintenance. I love installing and creating, but always forget maintaining. So, I accept who I am and don’t grow roses. Which also means that prior to this date, I had never seen raindrops on roses in the early morning summer light. It was hard to pick just one of the many pictures I took. I chose this one because it isn’t obvious this is a rose. I like the purity of the white. I like the layers of the petals and the suggestion of a center, but yet not a well defined one. I like the raindrops in only some areas - allowing an area of petal smoothness and an area where it is broken up. I also like the raindrops defying gravity on the edge of some of these petals. I hear a deep silence in this picture.
(which was not reality since it was taken in summer and early morning!!!!)
