Spring Tulips

They come and go quickly in the Spring, these wonderful, colorful marvels of our plant world — Tulips!

Using different settings on my Nikon CoolPix L830, I photographed the Tulips in the circle garden at the Veterans Park at the Bridge across the street from my apartment building.

The top right photo is Yellow Tulips in black and white; below that photo is Yellow Tulips in sepia.

The photo at the top right is Yellow Tulips in black and white. Below it is a Red Tulip in a red only setting.

Close-ups are, from left, red only, red in black and white, and yellow in a yellow only setting.

 

 

And then, they begin to fade, and break away, to seed for another day:

Hooray for Tulips!
