...to finally shoot something again.
Ok, it's a flower. Ok, it's in my front yard. Ok, it's not like I ventured forth into the wild recesses of Iowa to track down the lonely tulip that has not been seen since the Bohemian Beatnik Renaissance in old Holland in 1966. But, oh, it felt so good to actually shoot something for the first time this year.
I even used my new macro lens, which had been sitting on my shelf unused for almost three months now.
I like this shot because the background is slightly blurred yet still recognizable without being distracting. The focus... literally and figuratively, is on the tallest tulip, as it should be.
