One for my neighbors ....

Although not a photo I'm overly fond of, this does give me a sense of our rose garden from just in front of the arbor. What drew me actually was that rose's mouth-like center. As if it were singing with delight. (I also think of one of the muppets jumping up, right in front of the television camera, wide-mouthed and laughing.)

Here's a different pic of that same rose. I'm less partial to this one, mostly because I have so many in this style in which the flower seems to float and has interesting petal patterns. It also doesn't have that same "singing" look about it that I'm drawn to in the first pic:

I'll most probably exhibit the first above in my show on July 24th.

BTW, I finally made it all the way through the thousands of pix on my computer last night. Phew! That whoop of delight you may have heard was me. Not only because I'm now ready for the final culling and printing, but I've cleaned off a lot of pix from my poor belabored computer and slated others for re-editing or scrapping.

Additional BTW, at the exhibit only a small proportion (of the more eye-catching) pix will be on the walls. Most will be in plastic sheet protectors in two three ring binders to be leafed through, ersatz portfolios. A third binder already holds those I'm selling as 4X6 note cards (each has a blank white label on the back and comes with an envelope). Purchasing prints other than the note cards will be by order. Money up front, picture to arrive in a couple days. Hand-delivered (as opposed to mailed) as I'm not expecting any but fellow residents and maybe some staff people. I can't charge much since the pix won't be matted or any larger than about 5X7, though they will be on glossy photo paper. But I'm not doing this for money. In fact the idea of selling was an after thought. However, it would be terrific if sales brought in enough to cover the cost of a color ink cartridge!

Yeah :-D and it didn't make the final cut for my exhibit, after all.
