Photographing Nearby Roses

My friend Wanda shared a beautiful photograph she took of roses in a watering can, which I am now sketching. I will post that drawing here soon, but her photograph inspired me to go take pictures of some nearby rose bushes. You know they say a rose by any other name would be just as sweet, which is interesting since the Spanish word for rose is rosa, the French word is τριαντάφυλλο, the Russian word is роза, and you get the idea! Not matter what language you use to describe the rose, these flowers are truly fragrant and mesmerizing.
