tulips

Photography is changing things about me.

I asked my husband to bring me flowers - so I could practice using my 100mm macro lens.

As a surprise he included a small bouquet of these shell pink tulips.
Cheerful and resiliant, these are a kind of flower that have been known to actually push their way up through the snow to bloom in the climate we live in.

Spring is still a long way off for us but seeing these on the dining room table reminds me to keep the faith, it is coming.

I just want to reach out and gently touch these. You captured the delicate color and texture so well.

I need that same faith for spring, so thank you for this image.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
