What better way to celebrate the Spring Equinox than to visit a Tulip Festival in the Dandenong foothills! I was more focussed on humans than I normally would be in a situation like this, but despite that, I have come home with hundreds of flower photos--probably enough for a tulip a day for the next year. Rather than choosing carefully, I'll just give you the first tulip of the day: It was a day for using my macro lens. That's a good thing. It was also a day for much bending and crouching to get close enough to the flowers to get the shots I wanted. That's not such a good thing. I have so many aching muscles today! Oh well, I guess it's another aspect of beauty and pain--or is it another activity for my mythical textile gym?
