Christmas Rose at New Years
What I love most about my photography (aside from the fact that this image is a scan) - is being surprised by what I've captured.
So, there I was putting away the groceries this afternoon, when I noticed the first of my Christmas roses was going. And it was leaving in a stunning manner... all these leathery wrinkles.
So, I plucked it out and took it to my studio and tried to take some pictures. Haven't looked at them just yet. ... perhaps I will be surprised again, but it didn't seem to be going all that well.
Trying a different approach, I laid the rose on the scanner. That went OK. And then I happened to zoom in.
The rose has these Maurice Chevalier lips...
kissing the old year good bye.
