There were a number of scenes from the Tulip Festival that I processed in black and white. In these scenes the vibrancy of the tulips drew the eye away or the busy backgrounds needed to be toned down. I like this girl’s pose, to be that young and flexible again! In the next two pictures, the tulips were so vibrant that they drew the eye away from the children. I love the expression captured on the young girl’s face as she looks down at the others. She looks like a queen staring down the rabble. There were these large wooden shoes that had many children coming to play on or have there pictures taken. The young boy waiting in his stroller didn’t seem to mind having his picture taken. Lastly, I have included a close-up image of a single tulip. I am always looking to process dramatic black and white floral photos whenever possible and this seemed to be an opportunity not to be missed.
