Happy Easter

Caution: Wet Flower!
With the suggestion from our neighbor, we went to Al’s Garden this morning, just a few miles down the road from where we live. I only brought my macro lens and Pokie was the sole photographer for this assignment. We quickly downloaded our images and one finger stay on the DELETE button since taking macro we have to content with unintentional blurriness; we want some “BOKEH” effect that will enhance the images on the other hand. I hope you find your favorite flowers or colors. We also wish you Happy Passover and Happy Easter 2014.

Woodburn Tulip Festival 2014

I could easily say this is “Happy Spring II” the sequel. The weather is a bit chilly but the lighting is outstanding to take tulips. These colors are screaming to my lens wanting me to click the shutter button. While I like overall pictures, sort of landscape, stacking the various colors to make a good composition, Pokie prefers a more close-ups of the flowers. As a result, we complement each other and make such a good team to take this tulip festival of 2014. The last time we came here was in 2010, some four years ago. Come, I take you for an easy walk; watch the puddles!
