I told you yesterday that I had fun shooting before an imminent rainstorm. Here are the shots I quickly snapped. Yes, I shed my usual garden-shot-uptightness and went with the flow with gratitude for the overcast light.
A rose garden in full bloom can be very intimidating to this photographer. There are so many choices and angles to deal with-- which one will be best?
and have I ever mentioned the parking lot and elementary school that is a stones throw from the roses? This rose is 'Therese Bugnet', who I will be showing you in more detail, sans autos, in a later post.
'Therese' and hundreds of her special old rose companions will be on display at the Celebration of Old Roses, this coming Sunday, in El Cerrito, CA.
