Week 35 #18 Hidden From View


I love tulips and have bought several bunches the past couple of months to photograph.  I enjoy watching them go from a beautiful almond shaped bud to a fully opened blossom exposing all the beauty of the inside.  I decided I prefer to photograph them when they are on the waning side of their freshness.  Each one goes through a total transformation as it begins to drop its petals.  I captured this image with the bright yellow pistol and stamens slightly hidden from view.

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.
