Happy BOKEH Wednesday my friends!

Bigger is better


This mini rose is from my garden and it barely measures 1 cm/diameter. It is tugged away under a big bush and doesn't get much light - but it never ceases to deliver.

I wish you a fabulous day! (^!~)...:)

Can you imagine paper made out of rose petals. What if they made bank notes of it, you could then adore the smell of money.

Many thanks for visits, comments and faves, most appreciated!

Shot this with the kit lens (18-55 mm) and the camera in macro mode. Even though it was raining, the fact that I was shooting into the light from the kitchen window probably didn't help, lol. But the noise in this photo (an enlarged section of a much larger image) proves to me why it's time to break out my beloved macro lens, which I've not used for some time.

Here is the third view on the same rose...

English Rose (Ausblush) 'Heritage'

Tucson, Arizona.


A fairly accurate representation of how we felt after our moving sale this past Saturday. But, nothing daunted, we're forging ahead to move out by September 24th. May the angels send in their equivalent of the Marines to help with the mountain of tasks remaining to be done, lol. This rose is from a bouquet that I just didn't have time to photograph when it was in full bloom.

"You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may tread me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I'll rise." - Maya Angelou

This scenery is seen on the way to the Snoopy waterfall which was uploaded on Oct. 30.

The tunnel-shaped structure called "snow shelter" has been built on the mountainous road

since there are many places where snow drifts. The photo is rotated 90 degrees for fun.


Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed

Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger an endless aching need

I say love, it is a flower and you, it's only seed


It's the heart, afraid of breaking that never learns to dance

It's the dream, afraid of waking that never takes the chance

It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give

And the soul, afraid of dying that never learns to live


When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long

And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter far beneath the winter snow

Lies the seed that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes the rose

A friend of mine grew this rose and shared with me its swirl in the middle. I did not think that I would photograph another rose but I was wrong. This is a detour from things with wings and the like and I've succumbed to the beauty of this rose and... well... here it is... A Rose for Carrie. I chose to keep it low key and kind of grainy. I hope it works.

I was hanging out yet another loads of my son's washing today when I spied this lovely beetle high on a Dog Wood flower, and for the first time ever my camera was nearby ready with zoom! I had no idea what this beetle was but googled it (google is a wonderful thing!) and I found out it's a Rose Chaffer Beetle. A beauty with its shiny green armour!

It happened in the Rose Garden


Bokeh: The term comes from the Japanese word “boke” (暈け/ボケ), which translates to “blur”, “haze”, or “fuzziness”. It made its way into English-speaking world back in 1997 after Photo Techniques editor Mike Johnston changed the spelling from “boke” to “bokeh” to make the pronunciation of the word more intutive, lest people pronounce it like “poke” with a ‘b’.

Another rose garden shot for you my dear friends!!!


Enjoy your weekend! Cheers!!!

The rose is a type of flowering shrub. Its name comes from the Latin word Rosa. The flowers of the rose grow in many different colors, from the well-known red rose to yellow roses and sometimes white or purple roses. Roses belong to the family of plants called Rosaceae. All roses were originally wild and they come from several parts of the world, North America, Europe, northwest Africa and many parts of Asia and Oceania. There are over 100 different species of roses. The wild rose species can be grown in gardens, but most garden roses are cultivars, which have been chosen by people.

Over hundreds of years they have been specially bred to produce a wide variety of growing habits and a broad range of colours from dark red to white including as well yellow and a bluish/lilac colour. Many roses have a strong, pleasant scent. Most roses have prickles (incorrectly called thorns) on their stems. Rose bushes are able to tolerate a wide variety of growing conditions. The fruit of the rose is called a hip. Some roses have decorative hips.

Roses are widely used across the world as symbols of love, sympathy or sorrow.

I haven't been out shooting much the last week or two due to the constant snow storms here in upstate New York. In the last two weeks we have received more then two feet of snow. This was taken on a really cold morning a few weeks ago. if you look closely you can see the ice covering most of the braches. The morning I shot this the temperature was around six below zero.


I drive past this location on my way to and from work everyday. On this day I loved the fog rising off the water and the sun shining on the ice covered branches.


Have a great weekend All !!

The final petals of the rose have fallen,

Leaving rose hips,

Like tiny crabapples

With a crown of rumpled hair

And calyx now dry and stiff

As a starched collar

Trying to hide the crimson berry

That stands erect upon the high

Seat of the peduncle

Se il tuffatore pensasse sempre allo squalo, non metterebbe mai le mani sulla perla

Muslih Al-Din Sa’di


Poiché viviamo una volta sola, i casi sono due: o accettiamo il rischio e tentiamo di impossessarci della perla, o ci rassegniamo a vivere nel rimpianto di non averlo fatto. E se al mondo esiste davvero qualcosa che meriti di essere temuto, è proprio questo: comportarsi in modo da giustificare il rimpianto.


Purtroppo non ricordo da dove io abbia tratto questi stupendi pensieri e mi dispiace... Li dedico a tutti quelli che come me non amano avere rimpianti.

Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

May your mountains rise into and above the clouds."
