“I am impressed with what happens when someone stays in the same place and you took the same picture over and over and it would be different, every single frame.”Annie Leibovitz
I personally love this challenge to have a subject that is photographed over several days and be challenged to fall in love with it anew each time.
I think it is time to create a new series.
The weather report predicts 12 - 16 inches of snow coming our way so I'll go to the local flower shop and buy a bouquet that I can photograph over the weekend.
Bring it on!

|#8 Tulips Series 2018|
I fell in love with black and white film photography back in 1976 when I discovered and fell madly in love with the work of Edward Weston (1886 - 1958). http://www.artnet.com/artists/edward-weston/
Even though I'm photographing 100% digital image capture and 95% color these days I'd like to think I will always see images as though I'm creating for black and white film developing.
|#7 Tulips Series 2018 for Scott W.|
While continuing to enjoy the pleasure of my creative moment I read on social media that the father of a friend of mine (Scott) had passed away unexpectedly, less than a year after he had lost his mother and his precious dog Lucy.
I felt compelled to take this portrait and adjust it so it felt more translucent, less substantive, more mysterious and ghost-like. I added a few words and sent the message with sincere condolences to Scott and his family.

A magnetic force pulled me toward the window to admire the light, feel the warmth of the sunlight and notice the shadows coming through the sheer curtains.
The light felt fresh and new while conversely, you could see that the tulips were starting to lower their stems, losing their strength and beginning to let go of a petal or two when they were moved, less than gently.

|#5 Tulips Series 2018|
Before running off to work these tulips forced me to stop and admire the soft morning light and the sweet shades of gray embracing them, from curtains on the left and right and the shadow falling behind them on the wall.
Who could resist?

|#4 Tulips Series 2018|
I arrived home from work and saw that there was enough late afternoon light to create this still life before it was too late and the light would be gone.
Quickly pulled a pashima shawl off a chair and some poetry books off a nearby shelf and created this portrait.

|#3 Tulips Series 2018|
Simple. Quiet. Elegance. Black. White. Gray. Light. Shadow. Texture.
All this spoke to me in a matter of seconds and prompted me to create this still life.
