Shot at Shinjuku Gyoen Park in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
Many roses were bred in this park. Various roses were in flower. The rose in this photo was one of them. Its petals seemed to be so soft in contrast with its thorns. When I watched only these petals, I couldn't understand it had also keen stings.
I thought it was same as the human society. Those who were taken in by the sweet appearance have a bitter experience sometimes. I want to have an ability to take the measure of the essence.
