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.
