I had time to sneak out on Friday and do some shooting. I had my Ricoh GR with me and the light was a bit funky going from sun to overcast. To make it more interesting I used the on camera flash for a lot of these shots. I normally would use off camera flash but I shipped all mine for an upcoming trip so no flash except on the camera. All of these tulips are in planters around where I work and starting to go out of season. I had the camera wide open at 2.8 to bokeh the background but you still get the idea you are in an urban environment which is why I didn’t crop the images down.
It’s also Mothers Day here in America and I know my THE MOM reads everyday and while she thinks I’m some rockstar photographer she only likes the flowers and a few landscapes. Since I’m being cheap and not sending flowers to her these count.
