Urban Tulips

I had time to sneak out on Friday and do some shooting.  I had my Ricoh GR with me and the light was a bit funky going from sun to overcast.  To make it more interesting I used the on camera flash for a lot of these shots.  I normally would use off camera flash but I shipped all mine for an upcoming trip so no flash except on the camera.  All of these tulips are in planters around where I work and starting to go out of season.  I had the camera wide open at 2.8 to bokeh the background but you still get the idea you are in an urban environment which is why I didn’t crop the images down.

It’s also Mothers Day here in America and I know my THE MOM reads everyday and while she thinks I’m some rockstar photographer she only likes the flowers and a few landscapes.  Since I’m being cheap and not sending flowers to her these count.

  1. Your correct I read everyday. I do love the flowers, lowly ones and some real beauties. I am hoping the photographer when he visits later this week will take some excellent pictures of my new gardens I have just put in. Lots of hard work. No flowers from him on Mother’s day but I will get my call when he arrives at his destination and I will have him treat his mom and dad to dinner out while he is visiting which is a nice treat.
