Evil Tulips from the Laboratory…

Backlit glowing tulips

Tulips are widely grown in Washington as a commercial crop. Skagit, WA has an annual Tulip Festival in the spring where you can go see enormous fields of tulips in a wide range of shades and patterns. You can order bulbs from at least hundreds of varieties. Many people just grow their own in the garden or take advantage of volunteers.

Check out Roozengaarde or the Skagit Tulip Festival if you’re interested.

Despair

Dispair

This is an atypical image for me.  With rare exceptions, I don’t do people, and I don’t do emotion.  I didn’t remember having this until I was transitioning from Aperture to Lightroom and reviewing old collections.  It was taken from a Seine cruise in late afternoon (at the time, I didn’t re-set my camera clock for travel).
