Photo Shop Roses

The original photo

This is one of the roses in my back yard. I live surrounded by woods so my roses grow kind of wild. I decided to play around with my photo shop. This is what it looks like in black and white with a crinkle border.

Thank you for stopping by to visit this morning! Your roses are fabulous & I love the black and white version with crinkle border.

Oh I love playing with photo editing software! Mind isn't too great though, I really want to get photoshop one day, it's quite the investment though!

STUEY said...

BEAUTIFUL! That says it all. I love roses but here haven't had too good of luck, which is strange because I can grow just about anything. But snails and slugs are a big problem. DAR

Hi JC,

Read this description of the problems people who have been in coma have.

´´Coming back’ after being in a vegetative state – however temporary – leads to a confusion of headaches, blurred vision and generalised anxiety. Add to that the very real possibility of permanent memory loss and you have a person who faces the battle of a lifetime.´´

Sounds like you are constantly battling, a life of headaches and blurred vision.

Must be difficult especially as people do not see that you have a handicapp when they look at you.

Hope you had a good day today and will have a good week.
Take care.

I love wild roses!!

JC said...

Herrad ~ that's me exactly.

I look fine but I have headaches that cause me all sorts of grief. They started in the hospital and almost four years later ... they are my best friends LOL

Where did you find that info ?

JC said...

Dianne ~ well, come on over cause I've got em. They've been blended into ivy and trees and you name it. Hardy little suckers though cause they bend to the shade of the trees and keep coming back.

These and the photos in the post below are gorgeous. I love roses but don't grow them because I have problems with the thorns!

And thank you for stopping by our blog - I know I've been remiss in coming over to visit, but I appreciate it very much.

Oh such pretty roses! The color is stunning!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
