Pink and white is black and white

A bouquet of roses is what my son surprised me with on Valentine's Day. Even though each rose was a lovely mix of pale pink and white, I decided to post this photo in black and white for you.

How nice that your son bought you roses. Glad somebody got them.

I really like the B&W shot.

Beautiful and I it will keep it's bloom for some time.

You caught the light! And what a sweet boy you have. I'm realistic about Valentine's Day so I bought my own roses but I got a great card from each of my boys. They're really good about that.

A nice thought and photo.

Jilly said...

how lovely this is, first the flowers from your son and then the way you show this flower in B and W. Beautiful. Like silk with veins that breath. Sensuous I'd say.

I don't have a son, but if I did I'd like to think he'd be as loving and thoughtful as yours. And this image is just amazing! Seriously, wow.
