Rose Bouquet


Washington, DC--As I walked out of my house I found my photograph of the day. Someone had left a rose bouquet on the sidewalk next to a tree. It was a sad sight. Somehow, rejection came to mind when I saw it. But as it usually is with certain street images it is hard to know the real story behind them.

I bet those roses thought they were going to spend their days in a snazzy vase in a comfy apartment.

What a story must lie behind this photo. Great capture.

Maybe it wasn't rejection? A memorable spot from the giver of those roses...

A wedding gone bad...

Whatever the reason for the bouquet being there, you have captured it so well. Probably a thousand words could match your photo. Great image.

An amazing shot and a moving caption, bravo Luis!

This is indeed a strangely sad image...it makes me think of rejection too - perhaps a suitor was on his way to see his beloved and then something happened either to change his mind or he was turned away. Beautiful capture!

Bella y evoca a una triste historia.

Nice! I like the contrast between the vivid red/pink hues of the roses and the gray gravel.

James said...

The first thing I thought was that this photo tells a story. It could be a different story to everyone who sees it. Nice shot!

I could come up with a dozen stories just from this one photo. Quite evocative.

Randy said...

The colors are amazing. I would prefer to think someone was honoring the tree.

I'm not sure if it's because I am sad at the moment, but I could have cried when I saw your picture, evokes strong emotion, excellent image Luis.

Irina said...

Yes, I think about rejection, too. Dead and artificial flowers look very depressing for me. Great shot.

a very impressive picture

T. Becque said...

They look a bit wilted so maybe they were discarded because of that. I'm looking on the bright side!
Do you actually photograph one for each day? Or photograph and post one each day? Your comment of finding a photo for the day made me wonder.
