October 1st

Every year, as October approaches, I think of this photo...

I still remember the day I took it... I still remember seeing it though our breakfast bay window... I still remember everything about it and every thing I've done with it...

I took it on October 1st, 2016, and I have used it countless times on cards and calendars and various other print and digital projects... It was, is, and will likely always be one of my favorite photos from my rose garden...

This photo may not tell much more of a story than a rainy day in a rose garden to you but it reminds me of so many things from that day and so many days from then to now...

It tells me a story spanning four years - a story of me and of those around me...

It marks a major transition in my photography...

It is a photograph...

It is a photograph of a rose...

It is just a photograph of a rose in the rain...

But it is so much more than that to me.
