Maybe someone will revive Smell-O-Vision. Then we could all smell the digital roses.

The fact there's a Highway to Hell and only a Stairway to Heaven should tell you something about anticipated traffic.

I don't remember scratch and sniff at the movies but I do remember lots of magazines with scratch and sniff ads in them.

Thank you for your beautiful roses. And thank you and others for wishing me well last week as I was recovering from some type of flu. I am feeling much better now.

Here are some buds, still undressed but showing potential.

Stay well and strong everyone, and enjoy your weekend.

I'm glad you enjoyed the photo and music. Melody Gardot is one of my very favourite. And, it's so refreshing to just feel normal again.

Hi all, Hey SP! Hope all is well out there!

Outstanding Rose photos SP! Great work man! Love the water drops, and that last one. Dark backgrounds work great on flowers. The Wildflowers of the Texas Hill Country by Marshall Enquist sits on my desk. He carried a black board or construction paper and photo'd all the flowers against black backgrounds. I sorta like the out of focus flowers of same species when natural unmanipulated shots, but it can get cluttered quickly. For the field guide use having them on that uniform dark background works great. Sorta punches the color out more. Beautiful stuff SP!

There's been times in the past when I've used a black background when photographing flowers in the field and I almost always use one when photographing flowers in the studio.

Hi all,

Just a drive-by...

The one on right is called Indian Blanket or Firewheel, and Coreopsis is on left.

A patch of Firewheel looks like an Indian Blanket they seemed to think when naming it...

This is a variant Firewheel that is mostly red.

Nice flowers. With all that red and yellow, I see why they call them a Firewheel.

If I wouldn't crush them I'd enjoy lying in that field of Indian blankets ; ).
