Pearls & Lace

The lace is very very old, possibly 200 years, the rose is fresh from the garden. The lace was given to me many years ago by my mother-in-law and it had belonged to her grandmother. In another life, before computer and camera took over I designed and made clothes, and I used some of the lace on the shirt these pearls and rose are lying on. Taken with Canon EOS450D, 60mm macro lens. Thank you for viewing. This is my contest entry.

Simple and beautiful and deserves to do well in the competition. The detail in the lace and the lustre of the pearls have both been wonderfully captured.

The reason why the sunsets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

I had an idea to do something like this for the contest but think I will pass now LE. This is beautiful and the story behind the scene is great.

"There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all"
