I purchased several bouquets of flowers a couple of days ago. The weather today has been stormy and sunny, which always makes perfect photography light. I thought I would capture and share a few images of these tulips...to sort of make-up for the pillow massacre.
I'm normally not a fan of any shade of purple. But every once in a while, I will run across a flower that is the palest shade of lavender and I just have to buy them. Like these...
I call them "Barely There" because the lavender color is barely there.
It is amazing how light sometimes changes the color of an object.
My 50mm lens gives me a short depth of field, with the focus on the flower and the background blurred.
The petals give the illusion of being transparent. I love the way some of the stems are bending, as though swaying in a breeze. Don't you?
The house is quiet. Outside the wind is blowing, but nothing can be heard but the click of my shutter.
It's a nice sound.
I think you would agree!
