The Rose & Gods' Paintbrush - Volume II
The Rose, elegance and beauty in one form....
by Stan V. Griep
This is volume 2 of my photography books series, featuring photos of roses from my rosebeds. Also a couple special photos as well. This volume is intened to improve upon volume 1 of the series by increasing the number of photos for your viewing pleasure. The two volumes two compliment each other though, so if you purchase one you really should purchase both to get the full enjoyment from them.
I am a hobbyist photographer and love to take shots of the roses and flowers my wife and I grow. Also like to go on photo shoots to some other gardens and to the mountains. The books I have published here of photos of my roses and other flowers are some of my award winning and first place winning shots. The book on growing roses I have published here is all from personal experience of growing and tending rosebushes for over 40 years. Some of my accomplishments in Photography are: I have won many first place ribbons in photography shows and contests over the years with my photography of roses and flowers. My photography work has won Best Overall Photo of Show several times now. My Photography work won the District Photography Trophy twice now from the Rocky Mountain District of the American Rose Society District Shows. A special award recognizing photographic excellence. I have won awards from the American Rose Society Photo Contest as well.
