Tulip Warning

April 10, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

The tulips are in bloom at Cheekwood.

We were there this week to purchase our annual membership. The garden is not far from Maddy's school although it's quite a distance from our house. We pick up Maddy at least once a week after school so we could schedule a Cheekwood visit as well. Of course, I complain that visiting in the middle of the day is "crappy light"--harsh, and overhead. But, the flowers were quite colorful, and I was not the only one there with a camera, as I noticed a couple of Brentwood Photography Group members there as well. I suppose someone would tell me that competent photographers can get excellent photos in any kind of light. Sure, but terrific, dramatic light (early morning or late afternoon) makes for great photos. It's not about the camera; it's about the light!

The funny part was that all of the tulip beds had warning signs that the wire surrounding the bed was an electric fence. Supposedly, it was to prevent the plentiful deer from having a feast. I thought it was an obstacle course for photographers!
