Spring Rose Sprouts - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - March 24, 2011
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - March 24, 2011

I shot these back in 2011, in my backyard. Many of you will recognize the rose bush that has been in my wife’s family for generations. It is a frequent subject of my photography.

I really liked these two shots, but felt that on their own, they lacked something. I combined the two (below).

I experimented making it black & white, but still liked the pastels in the original color version. I decided to combine them.

What do you think?
