It’s been a year that I’ve lived in Downtown Phoenix now, and this afternoon when I decided to go for a bike ride I remembered the roses in the nearby Phoenix Rose Society garden would still be in bloom. I always seem to catch the tail end, where about a third of the flowers were still in good shape, but there were still some nice photos from it.

These photos were taken with my Canon EOS M and its 18-55 lens with macro filters added on (a +4, +2, and +1 all stacked together), which accounts for the “ring” you can see on the edges of a few of the shots.
