Those roses are my favorite shot.

the effects are wonderful!

Lovely images, and I like the technique that you used. I have wanted to take some photo's of the flowers at the stores here but always forget the camera when I go. I hear that a real photographer is never without his camera.

Spectacular shots Jacob. I already miss these scenes terribly.

Leif Hagen said...

Beautiful floral bouquets! I hope you bought one (or two) of them for Lois Anne! She's a saint . . . .

Jacob said...

@ Jarat - Well, even "real" photographers sometimes forget to carry a camera and that's often when a great photo opportunity arises!

JM said...

Beautiful set of flower shots!

Jacob said...

@ Virginia - Publix has a great bakery -- the best of the supermarkets, but if you haven't yet done so, and if you have a Bob Evans in town, hie thyself over there and try their pumpkin bread...it truly melts in your mouth!
