Project 52 - Week 5

I absolutely adore tulips! I have been photographing them for years and they never fail to delight!

One thing that is so wonderful about tulips is the way they continue to grow after you cut them. (If you don't believe me, buy some and mark the wall like you would a child, then come back a couple of days later. You will see..............)

Anyway, this ability to continue growing is what makes them appear to be dancing at times. This particular bunch seemed to change hourly. I kept my camera set up and would get a few shots and think "that's the one" and then come back and notice a different curve to one of the stems that made all the difference in the world.

In the end, this was my favorite one. I used my Nikon, added a little texture and a LOT of soft focus.
