A Rose by Any Other Name.

Just me playing about again



Four shots of a rose before a camera.






This one's just called Abstract


(Did you spot the photographer?)

They've binned their hobbies
not a stamp album in sight --

I like the way each photo changes the shape and colour of the rose. All the old hobbies which i grew up with have all disappeared which is sad really.

Karen said...

Beautiful! I think I see you!

Thanks. Yes, that's exactly what they're meant to be.

Hi, Welcome to the blog and thanks for the comment.

Gwei
Much thanks for that.

Windsmoke
I started with the intention of sticking to abstracts, but once I had let the rose in it sort of took over!

Karen
Thanks - I find it very difficult to keep me out!

My favourites are Nos. 2 and 4. I like the crystal bowl(?) in 2; gives new meaning to rose window! And I like the colour in 4. Don't really think I can see you in any meaningful way!
In todays electronic, video game age, one can't really wonder at the loss of traditional hobbies.

Looks like you enjoyed taking the photos, and your being present in the photo makes you that much more a part of it.

Very Cool stuff Dave! I really enjoyed getting lost in them.

Yes I read that about hobbies Dave - sad isn't it.

I really like this - the images and the words together - the old time recognisable changed to the cutting edge - stunning as it is - who knows what it could become next..

Thanks for all that Derrick. The supposed photographer (not me) appears (just the right hand side of her face) left side of the top image.

TechnoBabe
The seed of an idea! Thanks.

Carl
As I did doing them. Good to know, thanks.

Weaver of Grass
I think so, but maybe that's just nostalgia.

Rachel
Exactly! - Least of all me...
