Barely There...

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!
