Colors of life. No treatment on this.

Richard from Duns, United Kingdom

Gorgeous contrast between the red and the blue. The velvet of the petals is so beautiful.

The closeness & rendering of "fabric" of this rose on this blue backdrop is pure delight & romantism - excellent feeling, so soothing ;)

I was going to write that red and blue in perfect harmony is a refreshing departure from yesterday, though I certainly had no problem with the image or the comments. Of course, I didn't see what might have been said later in the day. At any rate, the photoblog is absolutely yours to control. So you do have to do with it what makes you happy. :)

26 Jul 2010 10:40am

@QB: Ha! Thanks, QB. : ) Some of the comments were just too negative for me. I personally thought it was a terrific image depicting the sign of the times - but the energy around the image just began to feel too negative and sometimes too personal. I loved that you brought up the fact that people were actually utilizing their freedom of speech while having this poster below them. Something that would never be happening if that poster was accurate. All in all an interesting experience. I believe the world of politics is a false world. SO, I am always more interested in the degree that people are engaging in it - (if that makes sense) than the actual politics themselves. Have a great day and thanks for your intelligent and sensitive comments. : )
