Antique Rose

I must confess I have mixed feelings about photographing flowers.  On the one hand, it's hard to resist because it's almost a guaranteed decent shot as long as you can hold a camera still and avoid blowing a color out.  In the spring, it's so easy.  They're beautiful and they're everywhere.  Like fishing in a stocked pond.  Point, shoot, nice photo.  And that's why my feelings are mixed.  It's so easy and it's so common that it almost feels like cheating, so I feel guilty about it.  Which is kind of dumb, but that's the way it is.
