Default OF course, tulips!

Last time I posted here, it was Valentine's day and I thought I had just gotten over being ill with the flu and spent the day going to the post office, shopping, doing a photo shoot, cleaning up and baking and then that evening I had a relapse and got sick again and was off my butt for the next couple of weeks. Finally at one point, not being able to swallow anything, not even a teaspoon of liquid, I was off to the emergency room. I don't usually go for a flu as there is nothing to be done, but I was not getting better. I was given antibiotics and some very strong gargle liquid and now, I'm so much better. It's taking me a bit of time to get my strength back, but I'm almost 100% now. My son brought me some tulips and that cheered me up enough to do a small shoot. Nothing very elaborate but tulips always make me smile and inspire me to shoot, so I'm sharing with you.

I hope you like them.

I look at all of these to see which I like the most.

In the end, I realize that they all are part of one edition and benefit from each other as this is an exhibit of your versatility!

Thanks Asher, I was just so happy to finally be doing a shoot and just enjoy myself and don't worry enough if things mix and match. Went through the photos tonight and added a couple extra that I will share here in a few. Thanks so much for taking a look and leaving a comment; appreciate it!

:-)

Thanks so much, James for taking a look. These were bought at the grocery store, we still have plenty of snow here... too much for me, but nothing to do; mother nature does as she pleases!

I have added a couple more that I found looking through the shoot that I liked and thought it would be cool to share.

The best ............and the closest to the magic of vintage lenses in the walks of Dr. Karl Schmitt!

Yes at first glance the second image does stand out but I find the first as equally interesting!

Thank you, Asher and if only I could go on a walk with Dr Karl Schmitt and enjoy and try out his lenses. That would be so cool!

That is very kind James. Of course, every dance is a little different and can appeal in different ways. I'm glad you like them both! :-) Maggie
