I almost posted this rose picture yesterday as a response to the horrific tragedy in the elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. But ultimately I didn't have the heart to do any posting at all yesterday. So I offer it up to today with deep sympathy for all effected by the shootings.
This photo,Omphalos, is a re-coloring of a new one I posted here a couple months ago. The effect is from the "sepia" function in one of my several small editing programs. Then I saturated the colors, and darkened them a wee bit to bring out the rose's central "glow."
