Roses are ..... red???

By mandarinkay
A single rose that was in another small bunch of flowers ..... need I say where from? .. lol .... taken in the kitchen with the back door open for max light, black velvet draped from the worktop to the floor, me sat on a little stool, (hips and back bloody killing me to do so!) and my trusty tripod ...oh yes .... AND .... with a little "help" from one of my cats .... aptly named "Trouble" .. he just HAD to see what I was doing and rearranged the flowers a couple of times just as I was about to press the shutter!!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and for all comments etc to date. Take care all,

Like the dark tone to an normally bright subject. Love the damaged petals and what looks like one lonely tear of a water droplet. So sad.
