Tulip mania, time conscious

Tulip mania struck again – I’ve been photographing tulips for years now. The shape and texture of tulips in decay – somehow this phase strikes me as decadent and beautiful. And it is a kind of time-conscious thing, too. 

Have sorted the pics I took earlier this week. I took photo’s in shade and in sunshine to see what the differences would be.  Below is  Tulipa Hageri ‘Little Beauty’, further below are black-and-whites of both  “Little Beauty’ and Tulipa Tarda. Pretty dramatic …



  • for colour photo’s direct sunlight is superfluous;
  • direct sunlight works when backlight;
  • for black and white direct sunlight is good.
