Oh Rose thou art sick

_MG_4682Here is a shot that is completely different in style to the Ballet in the last post.

Just a twenty year old dead rose in clear glass bottle, taken with a Lensbaby and an amended colour temperature.

With apologies to William Blake I can never remember if “The sick rose” is in songs of innocence or experience. I had a vague feeling I might have used that quote before. I Googled it only to find my own post done in 2011.

The essence of this style was around in the 1980’s with such photographers as Robert Farber. The original was done with 1000 ASA Agfa colour film to enhance the grain and soft focus filters.

A big hello to all the new followers of my blog this week.
