I don't know why all of a sudden our roses are blooming like crazy. Obviously, they like something, and it seemed they were calling my name begging me to come out to see all their beauty...which I did, along with a pair of scissors, and my camera. I wanted to bring some of their beauty indoors with me as well as preserve it in camera. I think this is the roses last hurrah before winter arrives.
Since I am taking a photo artistry class right now, I decided to try some of their techniques on a photo, and add a quote that I like.
