I’ve been told to distract myself a bit from stresses. And – as usual – I find photography of flowers to be one of my favourite distractions. There’s the actual photography – using the many qualities of light that appear throughout the day. There’s the  various ways in which the flowers present themselves, as you’ll see here. And then there’s selecting my favourites and photo-shopping.

These are some photos from a bouquet we recently bought. Not the everyday kind of tulip. I hope you enjoy.
