Rose

I make a deliberate choice to not photograph flowers for a couple of reasons: there are many other people (such as Ronald Balthazor) who do an excellent job of creating wonderful images of flowers, and I prefer the challenge of looking for beauty in the everyday. But I've had to make a small deviation from my normal policy.
We have this scraggly looking rose bush in our front garden which I walk past every day. Every so often it puts out beautiful little flowers. As I went past yesterday I saw one with its pink petals against the grey of our concrete porch and I just had to take a photo of it. So here's one of my rare flower images.
Rose on grey, Blacktown
You'll find it in the Nature/Blacktown gallery.
