    I forget about your meme Chris. I will try to remember next Friday. Your rose is so pretty in the closeup. I have two new roses coming this week the Music Box and Mustard & ketchup. Or is it the other way around, Ketchup & Mustard? LOL! I always forget. Have a terrific weekend.

    A beauty of a close in shot Chris. I have some fill the frame panel type workups that I have done up, perhaps those qualify???


    • Would be awesome! Its great to encourage others to experiment with photography. I am a rank amateur to be sure, but you can really expose the beauty of the rose by shooting from many different angles and light conditions as well as close up and maco shots…. Your work has always inspired me!

  5. If you click again on Mr. Linky link, you will now see your link with the others posted. I am trying to figure out a way to post it directly on the web page and not another site… I’ll figure it out eventually… HA!
