52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

21. It Happens Over Time


My archives are full of options for this theme, primarily old buildings that have deteriorated over time and man-made objects neglected and bequeathed to the elements to consume. However, today I took several photographs of flowers at a property that is being prepared for the housing market. While I was going through what I captured, these roses immediately made me think of “It Happens Over Time”. All the stages of the rose’s life are caught in a single shot, from bud to bloom to rose hip. And of course, I had to play a little. So, I’m including the original as well as the copy I fooled around with.

  4. Who doesn’t like roses? I can think of not one person. Both photos are beautiful but I am leaning towards the softness of the processed one.
