photoblog image Tulip

Tulip

Taken one lunchtime many years ago when I worked in London.  I took the camera out to a local park to capture some spring flowers and was intrigued by the shape of this particular Tulip.

Scanned from a 1970's colour slide on my old Microtek FilmScan 35 some years ago, processed in CS3 and Topaz Adjust.  5/10

 

I have recently caught up with the postings and archive from Frank Croston (blueskys), take a minute to have a look if you have time, Frank posts some very good images, you will find him at http://blueskys.shutterchance.com/

Those stems can be so long, Brian, I often wonder how most stay up! This one is down but not out. I love it's will.
Brian Walbey: I think Ray is right, it was seeking the sunshine.
Reaching for the sun!
Brian Walbey: I seem to remember a lot of trees around the flower bed Bill so you are probably right.

Great picture, love the angle.
I only had short stem tulips in my garden, for the reason that I don't liked them to be like this.
I will check out Blueskys.
Have a great weekend.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, we have been watching the wedding on TV.this morning, of course our own daughters wedding two weeks ago is our wedding of the year, my pictures are coming up next month.
It certainly is a curious shape Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think, as others suggest, it is seeking the sunshine Stanley.

Hi Brian, it's like it's down but fighting back!
The ones in my garden just give up!
Thanks so much for your kind words,that is so nice of you.
Brian Walbey: Sadly Tulips never stay pristine for long do they Frank.

This flower has no backbone Brian.
Brian Walbey: It took me ages to bend it into that shape Chad smile (not)

this lonely red tulip, stretching out and elegantly dancing along the wall, is a jewel; I would say: appropriate to this Royal Wedding Day I watched for hours on TV- and honestly, I found it wonderful and really in style, and I admired the fitness of H.M. and the prince of Edinburgh while going, standing, entering the carriage without any help in their age!
Brian Walbey: It is indeed elegant just as Catherine was at the wedding yesterday Philine, what a marvellous event, we really enjoyed it, particularly the choral music during the ceremony.
Great scan Brian and your tulip is working hard to catch some sun and rain....great find...petersmile
Brian Walbey: I think it is trying hard Peter, thanks.
Definitely in search of the sun, Brian. An unusual take on a flower picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme. Although it was a long time ago I can actually remember being intrigued by this particular flower.
nice specimen, well captured. i do like this shape.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, I think it is seeking the sunshine.
