easter [16/52]

Normally, I go crazy taking photos of all things Easter. This year, not so much.

But I did go crazy for these tulips …

Beautiful light. And yes, the extreme exposure was done on purpose, messing around looking for a dreamy type of feel.
Whatever, I like it :)

Again with the light. I have issues.

Here we go. Some normalcy…

But of course, there must be some textures involved.

Florals demand texture.
It’s a law.

I love tulips.

And just to prove it was actually Easter around here,

some peeps :)

(I honestly, honestly despise this shot but it’s the only Easter-ish shot I took this week. Yuck.)

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend.

Mine was utterly lazy and absolute Heaven.

Perfect :)

    Beautiful tulips! And I really love the peeps photo, so cool!

    I was a photo slacker this Easter. I hate that, I wish I had captured more. Oh, well.

    Love the tulips…and they were so compliant by drooping.
    And the purple egg carton w/yellow peep made me laugh!

    I like the peeps shot! I like the one yellow amidst all the purple… and I also am a fan of extreame over-exposure in some shots, especially where there’s lots of white & light involved :)

    Jan, I love your peeps! And that first photo of the tulips: ADORE IT! You have inspired me to try something different with my camera settings. I am thinking of my orchids that are blooming like crazy right now. Thank you!

    Thanks everyone!
    Isn’t it funny how the shots we hate always turn out to the the ones people like?
    Says a lot about my questionable taste. LOL!

    oh shut up. I love all your shots, purple peeps included!
    that first image is gorgeous, I love the blown out look
    and you are right, florals beg for texture and you did it up fabulously.
    Happy Spring GF!
