Tulips, Tulips Everywhere

Today’s photograph is simple:  just tulips.  They are everywhere in this photograph.  I found this bed of tulips at a park in downtown Vancouver while out walking with my best friend.

We decided that it would be best to photograph these tulips as they were all uniformly white in colour.  At least, I remember them to be white.  They may have been a light purple.

I wanted to feature the contrast between the darker ground and the lighter flowers from a high vantage point.  I normally do not photograph flowers like this because it’s simply what we all normally see.  Since I was working with black and white film, I felt that the negative space of the darker background would help feature the flowers more ideally.
