What? This is so beautiful! The red rosary is a gift from my grandfather. The red color represents the blood and a securing of love and it also represents Jesus on the cross, so my grandfather told  me, “Never lose it!” My grandfather gave it to me when I was 14 years old, but that was my last gift from him because he was in the hospital.

My red rosary is very important for me because it’s a memory from my grandfather and days after he died. My grandfather is the best man because he taught me how to get things right but also taught me to be thankful for things, so why is this important for my grandfather? For him the red rosary is very important because I always used it when I was young, so for him it means when a securing of love.

The subject of this photo is my red rosary. For the background I used green fabric. I used centered composition. The orientation is portrait. The elements of design this photo shows are texture, color and repetition. I chose this photo because I can see the details of my subject.
