did somebody say 'tulips'??

Greetings all,
Yesterday i trotted off to Floriade with a picnic, some girlfriends & our iPhones.  
 Oh the tulips, over a million of them . . .  
 in every colour imaginable.  
 How fantastic is the iPhone 5 camera & i thought i was wobbling it!!
 Of course in bright sunlight - i couldn't see a thing i was aiming the screen at. 
 So a lovely surprise to this bounty of colour downloaded tonight.  
 There were displays & patterns of colours . . .
& tulips planted at different times for a layered effect.  
 Practising taking photos of flowers with light behind them, i.e. shooting into the sun.
We approached this frame with excitement, however, the plain black . . . underwhelming.  Imagine if it was an ornate frame, reclaimed vintage or even a plastic moulded faux ornate vintage looking frame . . . oh well, the tulips stole the show for me.  Love Posie

They are off your iphone - WOW. I smashed the screen on mine today:( I was doing so well and only a month till upgrade (although I was hoping to give it to the kids as an ipod for reading eggs and ballet class. Will have to look into seeing if the screen can be fixed.

Naturally Carol said...

I think they've had all kinds of frames over the years, at Floriade, as I recall. Our kids have grown up, but we have videos for years of successive Floriade outings..and I enjoyed every one of them. Flowers planted en masse never go out of fashion for me. You've taken some beautiful pictures Jennie..thank you for bringing Floriade to me this year!

Jane said...

Hi Posie

Ahhhhh, I love tulips too. They were my wedding flower. How amazing. If only it weren't so humid in Queensland! Thanks for sharing. :)

Maddy said...

Oohhhh, I love Floriade, it is wonderful, and it is free! I flew from Perth one year to go to Floriade with my step-daughter-in-law. If I lived in Canberra, I would go every year, several times!

Amanda said...

How beautiful. Tulips are such cheery flowers and en masse, they are SO vibrant. Sounds like a great outing x

A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.
