moments in focus…

There it was when I looked up :)



This morning I was sitting at my desk (I think I mentioned before, it’s really the dining room table) and when I looked out the window, there was the rose-bush looking back at me.  I picked up my camera, headed outside and took a few shots (more to come).  I thought the white frame looked nice for a change (instead of the usual black I seem to have a habit of selecting).

    Hey, thanks for the commenting on my blog. Looking at your work, I’m somewhat humbled by the compliment. This photo is unbelievably beautiful.

    The quotes a fine one too (never discount the wisdom of Ziggy). For my part, I wonder if roses would be as beautiful if they didn’t have thorns?

  2. i love the Ziggy quote. So often our perspective is misplaced. Beautiful rose photo. How I long for spring and the flowers that follow the long Minnesota winter.

  3. We have roses year round most of the time- only because in Texas we really don’t have a winter. :( Of course I would love to see some snow- the key word is ‘some’, I imagine you are seeing more than your share this year. -Kim
