Day 8 - January 8 - Still Beautiful
Flowers fascinate me. They are beautiful in their infancy as buds, magnificent in full bloom, enigmatic and lovely in their decline, when they are past their best. Much like people - we are all beautiful, at every stage of our lives. More people should remember that.
Tulips, as I mentioned in a previous post, are my favourite flowers. These are now in the sunset of their lives, but still display such beauty. I handheld this shot, and played with a higher ISO and shallower depth of field today to see what the end result might be. I'm quite pleased with it. I toyed with the idea of a more abstract image, but maybe that's a photo for another day.
