May Contest Rose


May Contest Rose

The backstory to this LO and photo is really great. At the recent SGs Midwest Meet up, my roomie, Amy, received a beautiful bouquet of roses from Mr Amy (He brought her flowers during the SG convention in 2008 and delivered them there in front of a huge roomful of SGs). Since Amy was flying home and didn't think her flowers would travel well, she wanted to take photos of them. She an I had planned a photo walk near our hotel in an old industrial area with lots of old brick buildings and such. So we took the bouquet of roses and took a bazillion photos around the area. Deserted old warehouses and factories and a bouquet of beautiful roses, the juxtaposition of the fresh and lovely on the old and worn out. We both got some great shots and had a blast for a couple of hours. This was my favorite shot out of that bunch.

    This is just gorgeous!
    Absolutely gorgeous! Your composition is just awesome and of course Amy's flowers are beautiful!
    What an inspired idea! The browns really make the red pop!
    That was a super idea -- love the juxtaposition of velvety soft petals agains the worn rough surfaces of the buildings. It made for amazing photos and a fabulous layout. I love the circle, and especially the use of a film strip as part of a cluster. I like how you brought that rose-red into the background, too. Love this!
    What beautiful photos and a great idea. Lovely colors for the layout. I love the film strip.
    This is beautiful Sandi!! It caught my eye right off :)
    Very beautiful, Sandi! The photos are great (as is the story behind the photos!) and the layout skillfully center-stages them!!
    Beautiful!! LOVE the all the elements! How cool this all looks together.
    really beautiful shot!
    Your layout is so interesting to look at here! My eye is just jumping all around the page ... but there is no mistaking that "the rose" takes first notice! Beautiful page Sandi!
