Roses, Roses

Weekend Roses
No, these roses aren't from my garden; they are from Trader Joe's. I look forward to seeing their floral collection each week when I do my grocery shopping. Great prices and a nice selection, too. 

For these photos, I wanted to play with my 50mm lens at its widest aperature of f1.8 because I love the beautiful bokeh (blur) backgrounds it creates. 

I also like playing with different presets (filters) in Lightroom. This one gives the roses a vintage feel, with a warmer, more yellow hue overall.

Oh, and it helps to have a window that hasn't been cleaned recently!
