Extraordinary, astonishing, and magnificent, I’m writing about tulips. Orange tulips create warmth and happiness and make me jump for joy! When the sun hits them just right, it stimulates my creative genes. I walked around, perusing these orange beauties trying to figure out what angle would be the best to photograph them from. Shall I photograph the inside of a tulip, the pistol, the stigma, the stamen, or the ovary? What about photographing a wilting orange tulip? When they begin to expire, tulips are dignified and elegant; their beauty is enhanced. Their petals take on unrivaled shapes creating art forms.

I decided to photograph a wilting orange tulip. A tulip that looked as if it was going to take flight. It took me back to lying in the grass and watching birds take off when I was a kid. The petals were extended and held high into the air. There was just a bit of yellow interior exposed, adding cheer. The grace, ease, and arrogance of the tulip were well deserved. A proudness accompanied the tulip’s bon voyage. Its stunning body, gentle curves, and vibrant colors were brilliant as it embarked on its departure. The tulip was surrounded by a host of orange tulips and green leaves, providing beauty, support, and reverberating peace and well wishes. As the tulip posed, I took its final portrait. Well done, orange tulip! You gave your admirers so much joy, so many memories, and a wealth of smiles.

Get your cameras out and photograph the beauty of spring.
