366 Challenge 47: Red

Mia's Pearls 366 Photo challenge

Here is another photo from my little walk through Lysekil on Saturday. I started my walk with admiring the most adorable of houses. It also had a beautiful rose garden and as I was standing there (literally drewling) and elderly lady came out to greet me. She was so sweet and you could really see how happy she was to get some company. She didn't say much at first, just stood beside me smiling but after a little while she started telling me about the garden and the house.

I took several pictures of her house after telling her about the 366 challenge, and this rose stood so beautifully on its own against the backdrop of the house, I just have to have it for the 366.

I get cheerful just thinking of this sweet lady, this red rose is a great reminder.

That's a wonderful photo, Mia, and even richer for the story which goes with it! Lucky you to find her and the location!

Mia, that photo is a WINNER! It should be entered in a contest. The red with all of the white, and the blue sky, is stunning. And knowing just how to frame this to get the single rose with the beautiful background is a great talent.
