Tulips From May (Three Photographs)

I keep mining my photos from that day at the May Tulip festival. I don’t think people take flowers like roses and tulips for granted but as we become more familiar with things we see every day they begin to fade into the background. An example of this is walking around your town and thinking about how many more photos you could take if you were in an unfamiliar city. The upside of home ground is if we see something out of the ordinary it is more likely to make an impression. Photography captures time and detail and it can become addictive in the sense that it becomes a habit to visualize everything through a lens regardless of whether we have a camera in hand or not. At that point you could be anywhere in the world.

  1. Wonderful photos and color. After spending this year really trying to get out daily with the camera, I can’t believe how true your statement is about visualizing everything through a lens and how it does become addictive. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and thoughts about photography, it has been greatly appreciated and helpful.

  5. That is so true. I find myself framing shots in my mind all the time even though usually I don’t carry a camera with me. It does become a way of seeing the world, doesn’t it? Lovely tulips (six months to go 😉 )
