The roses have been blooming like mad lately, and I've been out there taking photos of them like a maniac. Morning. Noon (when the light mostly sucks and I know it, but) Evening. When they're dry. When they are fresh from being watered. Buds, bloom, post bloom, rose hips, it's all good.
In a world full of ugliness, it shouldn't hurt your feelings to see two slightly different views of beauty. These first two are the same bloom, different zoom.
