These are my valentine's day roses from the beautiful Egyptian, still going strong over a week later.
I am still in the process of getting to grips with my new camera. I took these under artificial light, but think I must have had it on the wrong setting, so when I tried to adjust the colours, they suddenly took on that powdery-primitive look of 1950s greetings cards. And, you know what? I actually rather like it:
The vase is a genuine 1950s survivor. I found it on the £1 stall outside my local antiques shop - quel amazing bargain?
