Pandemic Rose

The year: 2021

We are in the middle of a pandemic. On 9 February 2021 I tested positive for the virus. On the day of the twins' 2nd birthday. Not quite the gift I wanted to give, or receive. But it is what it is (was).

I bought roses for Valentines Day.

This is one I took from the bouquet. And as it was dying, I pulled some petals off, one by one, and taking photos. (it's the middle of pandemic and I have the flu, what do you expect)

I took photos every day to help me cope with everything, needed to stay creative, grateful that I was able to and not too ill.

I ended with a nice selection of photos ranging a few days, in different stages of decay. But this one is my Favourite photo.

I dunno, somehow this rose has got character. Just love it, and it can hang in your home or office, not as a reminder of the pandemic, but of the beauty that still exists in the world.

Photo taken during the pandemic, February 2021.
