Just A Rose

By rpba18205
I took this shot in August 1972. Itís of a rose that I was nurturing in my then garden with the intent of entering into a local flower show. I was using a borrowed camera as I didnít own a camera then and I wasnít even sure how to switch it on. The results were little more than dismal but this one and a few others have survived countless moves and I found them at the back of a cupboard.

The film is a Kodachrome transparency that I have scanned in and digitally edited. I canít for the life of me remember the name of the rose. (V2 is just me messing about)

'Just a Rose' perhaps, but a very nicely captured one, Rob. My preference is for V 1 as I feel the spray of three blooms stands so well as an image in its own right.
