Excellent.

Begs the question:
--?? does he raise roses to give him something to practice with his photography?

--?? Or did he take up photography just to be able to record his roses?

?? Will he give us an honest answer?

Thanks, Steven!

I started putting roses in before I got the obsession. It seemed like the next logical step to play with shooting roses. They don't whine, poop their pants, jerk around, put their hands in front of their face going "Don't take my picture"... ad nauseum. They're good subjects! And, when done right, really brighten my wife's day at work when I email her one. Tell me I don't know how to suck up!

Gary, I like how the hints of red pop on these roses. Makes me think did they get their name because of this, implying that the overwhelming yellow after apparent bloodshed.

Very nice. You spray them with water before taking the shots, right?!?
