Black and White # 25 The Black Rose

Photograph of a rose by susan sheldon


I was wondering if an orange rose could look stunning in black and white. I was quite surprised when my beautiful rose went all moody and romantic in black and white.  This one looks as if it has a history to tell. A love story gone wrong… a love lost…


Black and White #25 The Black Rose

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
