I can’t decide which is more fun when it comes to a photo challenge: grabbing a camera to take a new picture OR browsing through digital photo files.
Frank Jansen Photography’s photo challenge this week is rose. I’m sharing three pictures from my files and one from trying to come up with something new.
First, a yellow rose in our yard from a few houses ago. I think that may have been the only place we lived with roses in flower beds. That is only because the prior owners had planted them!
Next up, a rose with an interesting center. I can’t tell from the series of pictures I took if the rose is in a bouquet or was a single stem. Nor can I tell you what the occasion was – although it was part way between Christmas and my birthday.
Finally, a rose of another color. It’s clearly from a bouquet on the dining room table. The bouquet may have been on the altar at church – but that’s a guess since other photos taken that day are all at the church.
I wanted to do a new picture for the challenge but there are no roses in the house. So I started thinking of the word “rose” as the past tense of the verb “rise.” While baking frozen rolls for supper I couldn’t resist this last picture. The dough rose before I put it in the oven, then rose more while baking.
