Spring is….Yellow and Green

There is a time and a place for perfectly in focus flowers.   Identification pamphlets for one thing.   Maybe even nature brochures – though I think the second may be a point of preference.  Fine art photography is not, in my opinion, one of these times or places.   Sure, I could spent an hour setting up my tripod and finding the perfect ratio between shutter speed and a tiny aperture to get every piece of the blossom perfectly sharp, but why bother?  Tulips are the very essence of the brevity of Springtime – you watch and wait with baited breath for them to open and in a number of days, they drop their petals and are gone.   The intoxication of the world waking up again after it’s Winter slumber is so intense that our very memory it becomes a blur.

This is my blur…
