Past It's Prime

Even past its prime, this rose is still beautiful in its own way! I think that recognizing beauty in things that are often overlooked is a huge part of being a good photographer.

I am being featured on Todays Flowers again this weekend. Be sure to stop by and see some of my other flower photography, as well as the beautiful work of the other participants!
