Allyson Osborn, 12/6/13's BackPacker Giveaway Winner, is a Digital Photography Major at Columbus State Community College in Columbus, OH. "Once a Rose" is part of her final project for a class she's taking designed to help students become more efficient as well as develop an artistic eye. She is currently studying the photographic style of Group f/64 and would highly recommend The Art of Photography by Bruce Barnbaum to photo enthusiasts looking to make a personal statement with their work.
This winning image was captured at Inniswood Metro Gardens, a 121-acre scenic nature preserve in Westerville, OH featuring more than 2,000 species of plants, specialty collections and themed gardens.
"I was inspired by all the decaying flowers and other plant life to show the beauty in their demise. It's sad to see the summer fully gone, but exciting to start this new season." - Allyson
