Love and Roses

"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity."
Eleanor Roosevelt
Tomorrow is Mother's day in Japan and the U.S. Happy Mother's day to everyone!

More roses for Shadow Shot Sunday. This is the second photo of the roses my husband got me for Valentine's day. The first photo is straight out of the camera with only sharpening adjustments. I used a movie flyer as the placemat.

Next is the same photo but edited into sepia.
