Tulips.. I love them. I think mostly because they are very simple and modern while being classic. I'm talking like they are a pair of shoes or something, but I really think that's why I'm drawn to them. There is such variety in tulips too: large, small, some with double the petals, some single, some look fluted, some have pointed petals, some are just the original style and of course there are so many colors and a lot of the hybrid ones have two different colors. Ah! perfection in flower form, ok, almost, roses are just about as versatile. If only calla lilies were as colorful..
I'm going to spare the tulip post of my life details for now and see if I can go find some more to photograph. I've started a "Tulips" file in my Fotki "Playing with Cameras" album, and I'm hoping to get a variety going. Maybe I'll go back to the tulip lined Michigan Ave. this weekend and shoot more- hint hint, Hope Ann ;)
Anyway, off I go, out to the yard, and surrounding yards. Be back with more tulips.
