Red Tulips in Black and White, Scenic Sundays Living for Today

Taken on May 18, 2009 with a Fujifilm FinePix Z5fd.

Another image from when I was first getting into photography. This is one of the few images I altered after taking it. I prefer straight out of camera (SOC) shots, but I found after switching this image over to black and white it had some beautiful contrast.

“What is so marvelous about living today is that it is possible to extend, like a flower, spreading petals in all directions.” Carolyn Kizer

    What a pretty photo!!! I love when people know how to use all those filters and things. I know nothing about it. Amazing quote to go with it too 🙂

    That is nice, and I like the quote too. So true -anything we do today can have ripple effects. Neat to think about.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Aw, I love this! The picture and the quote are so perfect together. I adore pictures like this, for some reason I can rarely seem to capture a flower very well, but yours is phenomenal! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • You are welcome, Shannon. Even though I shoot digital now, I’m always amazed at how well some of my shots turn out when I move them from my camera to my computer. I’ve found when shoot flowers in close up you have to move around the flower and get down at its level. Many times I’m laying on the grass to get some of my shots.
