This week’s Fun Foto Challenge on Cee’s Photography Blog is having fun with two-tone photos.
Cee says, The only requirement is that there are only two colors in your photo.
I found this more challenging than I first expected, but anytime I get to flip through my pictures I always have a great time! When I came across some photos of the roses I have planted on the roof, I figured they were about the only possibilities for two-tone images.
With this last picture, above, it already was basically two-tone, so I played more with the framing, trying to get a custom matting look for it.
The roses are not in bloom right now, they are resting up for the new growing season. I took these photos in December. I know that will make you more interested to live in Egypt when you learn that your roses will keep blooming even into the winter! Here’s the first rosebud and you will be amazed to see the peach tree behind it still has leaves – the peach trees here only lose their leaves for about a week, in January, and then they make new buds immediately! This photo was taken from the roof of the first floor, and in fact, this plant is the mother of all my roses. Mohamed’s father planted this rose in the backyard when Mohamed was a child, and our first year back I made many cuttings from it and planted them in pots on the roof.
And here’s a photo of the third rose with no editing. It’s up on the roof of the second floor where most of the roses are growing. This is my favorite place to hang out. There’s always something to do, playing in my rooftop garden, and the view from the roof is always gorgeous!
Not only that, but the Wi-Fi reaches up here, too! LOL, Rooftop blogging!
