I have been having great fun photographing the bunch of tulips I bought in a supermarket
last week. It's just as well that I want to put them under my macro lens as they would
be very disappointing if I just wanted them to look pretty in a vase. For they have
drooped since I placed them in the vase. Perhaps it's because I forgot my mother-in-laws
advice about cutting the stems on the diagonal before putting them in water. Or
perhaps they were just a sad bunch from the start. But they have provided me with
a colourful subject when I just have time to grab a quick shot during my lunch break.
I did read somewhere that flowers should be shot with defused light but I quite light
the effects created by the cold winter sunlight streaming through the sitting room window.
