Roses by Kimunscripted

Sometimes all it takes is a song. Maybe a drive through an old stomping ground. Our bodies are amazing creations and I love how our senses can bring back memories of a forgotten time or a loved one. I love this set of images by Kimunscripted, but more than the images I love the story behind them.

“While shopping for new flowers for my garden, I walked past a section of tea roses. I love roses but in the short moment I took to smell them I was flooded with a memories of my Grandmother. I don’t remember my grandmother had roses at her home but the lotion she wore must have been rose scented. It was in that one moment of I knew I had to have these flowers at my house. Capturing the flowers on instant film was so I could have a visual reminder of my grandmother every day.”
