For the past 2 years, I have ventured to Yaddo in Saratoga Springs in June to capture photos in the beautiful rose garden. This past weekend I was reminded there is a rose garden in Schenectady’s Central Park, much closer to home! I went in the late afternoon, hoping the harsh light of a sunny day would be under control. The colors were marvelous, although many blossoms were past their prime. As I hunted around, I found some lovely samples for this year’s rose photos.
