I couldn't believe my eyes. Four dozen roses and for no reason at all. Well, except for the fact that maybe he loves me and thought that they would perk up my spirits a bit. They did. Or . . . really, should I be worried? ha ha! This pleasant surprise was the perfect subject to photograph, but I had figure out a way to capture them without being cliché. THAT I found to be much harder than I had expected. I tried every angle. Side. This side. Top. Bottom. Nothing. Then I thought get closer. . . and closer. . . that's when I started to take notice of their beautiful centers. A vortex of beauty. That was the comment a sweetheart on Flickr left on the muted version of this image. She couldn't have said it better.
