Red roses – a photographic study

Red roses

two words

eight letters

These words – eight letters – fill my mind with a wealth of images, feelings, meaning.  Words often surprise me, but as a started to put these photos up here I found these two words to be particularly surprising.  Of course, the words “red roses” immediately conjure in my mind visual images of red roses. But I found that the conjuring continued beyond the images – into the symbolic meaning often associated with red roses.  I won’t try to explain what was conjured in my mind – to each their own.

The photographs here seek to capture the meaning of “red roses” in images.

It happens that I was inspired to publish these photos on the celebration of a birthday by a friend.  I acknowledge the inspiration.  I also dedicate the photos to the celebration of the birthday – and to any and all other emotions that come to mind.
