Roses Are Red… And Orange

Posted by at 9:28PM

Every day, on my way to class, I pass by the Hillel House, which has these luscious roses in the front yard, lining the driveway. Benefits of living on the Row, I guess.
Anyway, I’ve been searching for better subjects for display on my computer desktop lately, and thought today, “Well, how ’bout them roses?”
Take a look at these gorgeous roses, made desktop picture-size just for you (click on the images for high-res versions):

Why, how lovely! There are lots more where that came from.
(By the way, these were NOT enhanced other than a few tweaks here and there to make the images a bit brighter. Those colors are real, baby!)

    Oh don’t get me started on roses (or the flora) on campus! I’ve definitely spent my share of hours crouching over the perfect bud. For other ideal rosettes, check out:
    -the ring around the fountain in front of Green Library’s Bing Wing
    -behind MemChu
    -med school courtyard
    -west side of Stern residences (planted by one of the RFs)
    -Tresidder (ground floor near the Lair)
    That’s all I can think of off the top of my head, though I’m sure there’re lots more to discover. =)

    Beautiful! You should put a magazine together of your images.
