"A rose is a rose is a rose"

From 2010 Blog
"Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose." was written by Gertrude Stein as part of the 1913 poem Sacred Emily, which appeared in the 1922 book Geography and Plays. "A rose is a rose is a rose" is probably her most famous quote, often interpreted as meaning "things are what they are," a statement of the law of identity.

A rose may be a rose, but they are rarely photographed like this one.

Beautiful shot! I love how you've used light to compliment the texture and shape of the flower.
I love it!
