I’ll show another pair of photographs of flowers in the upcoming show at the Governor’s Gallery. I made both of these from bouquets of flowers I purchased to brighten winter days. Being able to work with a good bit of control over lighting and background, without wind and cold, is a delight. I also find I take more time to actually look and see the flowers than I usually do when working outside.
The Parrot Tulip was nearly a week old when I made this photograph. By then it had drooped over and the colors had mellowed. Many who have seen this image elsewhere are not sure whether they are looking at a plant or feather or “what is it?”
This pair of flower images will hang together on one of the Gallery walls. I’ll enjoy seeing them together and remembering the days I made them as the Vermont winter carried on.
