I live near Portland, Oregon, city of roses. Naturally, I'm going to have rose photographs!
I take almost all of my photographs of roses on the bush where they grow, using natural light.
If you're a rose lover, you should visit Portland. The best time of year to visit the Portland Rose Garden is late May or early June; but you can find roses in bloom on Portland streets nearly any time of the year.
