Portrait of a Rose

My "rose garden" consists of one plant. It doesn't produce many flowers each year. But those that bloom have a heavenly aroma.

As this flower came out of bud, I clipped it and brought it inside so that the sun wouldn't fry it this afternoon.

With the f-stop all the way down to 1.8, the focus falls away quickly and any little movement on these hand-held shots really shows up, especially in the leaves and background.

My 50 mm challenge continues
