This rose captivated me as I searched through my slide collection on Sunday morning. I lost myself in the beauty, the color and the forms of this lovely pink rose. I had no choice in the matter.
Like Alice in Wonderland, I was drawn within and whirled round and round. I had no choice. And you won’t either.
Yes. That’s it. Step a little closer. You can’t resist the sheer magnetism of my beauty. You have no choice.
Come closer still and inhale my intoxicating aroma.
Fall within and explore the delicacy of my petals, grow drunk on the sheer pinkness of me. Now I have you — forever mine.
Much as I love black and white photography, I’m not immune to the wondrous colors of nature. This beauty, this pink rose, celebrates color, form, texture. I had no choice in the matter. The sheer emotion of this rose pulled me into her embrace. I hope you enjoy this epiphany of nature as much as I have.
