  2. Hi lea,

    You're the first to comment today, thanks for taking the time and dropping round. I wonder what the magazine would be titled - probably something a bit more original than my title! :)

    Cheers,

    David

  9. Hi SandyCarlson,

    I'm sure you can understand why Shakespeare was so fond of roses. They are so beautiful, and digital photography allows us to capture and share them with the world, where they will never droop or fade! While Shakespeare preserved these flowers in his writing, we can now preserve them in image. What a wonderful privilege!

    Cheers,

    David

  10. Hi marcia,

    I have to admit, this photo is digitally cropped - the framing wasn't so wonderful in the original. Thanks for your comment, hope you have a lovely day.

    Cheers,

  11. Hi Chuck,

    Glad you could enjoy this picture so much. I'm sure you're not "deprived" of photography opportunities in the desert - you must have great sunsets and landscapes! :)

  20. Hi David,

    You have a great eye for nature. Your rose is beautiful. I love photographing flowers (and butterflies). Red roses can be tricky getting that right color on print. You did a good job! If you have a moment, please check out my website: dianasphotography.com

    Have a great day,
    Diana
