real water drops are a blessing.
Am I the only person who can't stand the fake plastic-y "water droplets" on plastic flowers? Eugh. Real, fresh rain is the only way to go - there's no substitute.
Sooo, after today's photoshoot, I was walking back up the path to my house when I noticed a few roses still in bloom on our tiny rose bush. The opportunity was too good to pass up: soft light, raindrops on petals, and oh look, I conveniently have this camera here with me! There were a lot more photos than this, but I didn't want to bore you - so here are my favourites. The contrast between the bright pink of the flowers and the grey of, well, everything else made the roses just that much more special, I think.
[Also, the white balance on my camera turned the gravel behind some of the roses a bright aqua colour. I kind of like it though, so it stayed :) ]
