Rose, March 2018

IT WAS THE LONG THIRD MONTH OF WINTER AND I WAS GROUNDED FROM TRAVELING and I needed a subject. My wife said it was about time to throw out the roses I’d given her for Valentine’s Day, which had dried up in their vase. I had a long afternoon with nothing else to do and the cold winter sun was coming through the kitchen window, so…


The buds were so dry that moving them from the big vase to the bud vase left petals all over the kitchen table. I could have set up my strobes or LED lights but I decided to just use the light from the kitchen windows. (Note to self: Use a tripod.) It was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon; I’d be perfectly happy doing this sort of thing every day.
