Falling

I was discussing the usefulness of tulips with a fellow PBaser only a day or so ago and here I am posting a photo of tulips. Truth be told I've spent a lot of the day catching up with a mountain of ironing - no idea where it all comes from but it appears almost overnight, so photography took a back seat and I didn't pick my camera up until late afternoon. There hasn't been any good light outside all day so I didn't miss anything there. (Now I've typed that a quote from a very famous photographer comes to mind about light. Something about any f!*!*!** light - you get the idea.) Well then it had to be the tulips. They're at least 2 weeks old and have flopped down onto the window sill… perfect.

The tulips still make for a beautiful shot Ann. Love the light falling on the petals :-)
