You can easily tell that I’m a Canadian because in most of my blogs I refer in some way to the weather. Several of my early spring posts commented on how late the tulips were this year because of the never-ending cold winter. But when they did bloom the beds were magnificent. I was out several times to photograph tulips. Also I did some portrait and street photography of the people enjoying the Tulip Festival. These pictures are from the beds at Dow’s Lake in Ottawa. It was a wonderfully warm evening and the crowds were out including many fellow photographers.
One good thing about revisiting a venue every year is that you get another chance to improve. In the past I have done a lot of close up or macros of a single tulip. In an earlier blog I posted some images of multiple tulips but I noticed that they were very similar in composition. So this year I wanted to improve upon these compositions and approach this subject from new and different perspectives.
