Gray and cold days are not my friend. As the winds of changes cold tendrils grasps my being so does my desire to enjoy every opportunity to capture the world through the lens. Time here on this Blue Marble, for me and you, is limited so I am trying to come up with creative ways to do what I love. You see I love nature and for three seasons the colors and the green and blooming things can be found. The Winter is indifferent to my desire to capture beautiful things so I have started a fun, so far at least, project I am calling The Red Roses Project. It is quite simple: I take these faux Red Roses and use them to add color to things in the gray days till Spring. The Roses I believe have been used three times in recent posts, so I am now putting a name to what has been running around in my pointed little head. Here is my latest sampling.

Striking! Good idea.
Interesting (and startling) to see my last name used as a first name on this old gravestone. Nicely done with the splash of color!
Thanks Rich! Your comment has me wondering what were the common and popular names of that era.Most are probably “boring” compared to today’s sampling but I bet they were badges of honor and quite proper to boot!
You’re probably right. I really never considered my last name being used as a first until I looked at your photo. Very interesting to consider.
This is such a great idea- and a great way to change things up! I look forward to seeing more-
I had the opportunity to take a few this weekend but only had my 55-300mm lens with me. Not good but I am going to try for one a week at least.~John
