My first thought on reading the Weekly Prompts: Aesthetically Appealing challenge was of some shots I had taken in the 1980s.
I used a high speed, very grainy film, Scotch Chrome 1000 and a variety of soft focus and diffusion filters.
The idea was to produce something different from the norm with the hope of getting calender and greetings card publisher’s interested.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Magenta Rose.
This photo dates back to the 1980s. I was experimenting with a grainy, high speed film and soft focus filters. The film was Scotch Chrome 1000, as the name suggests it was 1000 ASA.
I added more grain to this edit of the shot before adding a film type border with Snapseed.
This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is “The Look of Love” which made me think of roses, chocolates and this photo. Taken in the mid 1980s using a soft focus filter on the lens and a little known film, Scotch Chrome 1000.
