The enchanting beauty of tulips...




I fear I may have fallen into a trance photographing tulips as I wait for spring, for I can't seem to stop. Every day I seem to find a reason to pick up my camera and snap photos of the tulips I keep buying ~ a new angle, pretty light, a new bud that's opened. Tulips change so much more than other flowers; it's relaxing to take photo after photo because they're so enchanting as they open and bend toward the light. A vase full of tulips never looks the same two days in a row, which is irresistible to me. This bunch was particularly enjoyable to photograph; I even used one of the shots in my new blog header.
Alas, tulips don't last forever. I just bought two new bunches a couple of days ago. The camera seems to like them, too.

Your tulips are beautiful! I know what it is to have your camera attracted to specific things. I can't resist flowers or the ocean! Definitely time for me to "spring up" my house - I think I need some tulips!

A few years back, I was working in California and I kept buying tulips for my apartment. I absolutely loved photographing them. Your photos are lovely!

Thanks so much for joining in this week!

Such beautiful tulips, Eileen! And you captured them perfectly in your wonderful photographs. I love when they open wide and then 'swoon' over just before dying. Yours are just so lovely.
