Roses, this spring, are doing well. The first round of blooms has begun to fade, but new buds keep appearing to continue the cycle. I don’t remember the name of this rose, but it has a light, delicate fragrance, and rather loose, floppy petals, much like a wild rose.
… a rose embower’d
In its own green leaves,
By warm winds deflower’d,
Till the scent it gives
Makes faint with too much sweet . . .
Lately I have been too busy taking pictures with film to get out with digital. Browsing through past pictures, this one caught my attention. It was taken last January after the winter rains began.
This is a post-production image from my first roll of film in the Nikon FM2N. It is Fuji Superia Xtra 400, bought at the drugstore, developed at the drugstore. Lens is a Vivitar Close Focus 28mm lens.
If you click on the image, a new one will come up. If you have a magnifying glass for your cursor, click again, and the picture will blow up to the original size of the scan. Kinda interesting?
