White Tulips

More tulips found their way into the house the other day. White ones. How wonderful, as I have been wanting to photograph them. I have been working mostly in black and white lately, so much to relearn. I wanted to pay more attention to shapes and tonal values and not get caught up in luscious color. I find when I'm photographing flowers it's hard to stay away from the obvious, and so I hoped that by eliminating color I would observe more clearly. My favourite shot from the day was when I stopped looking at the flowers and saw the light pouring through the glass bowl and creating refractions.

  1. I so agree with you Liz - the light echoes the tulip form - although I do like the other 2 images of such simplicity

  2. Thanks Rosie and Matt, it feels like I keep repeating that wonderful line fromT.S.Elliot, where he says "We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."
