With a picture of these wonderful Tulips I’d like to wish all our readers a very Happy Easter. Thank-you very much.
Leica M9P (Not my usual camera for this type of shot.)

I’m not sure I understand what it means that the flower most associated with funerals is also the thirtieth anniversary flower, according toTeleflora’s website. Sometimes it’s best not to read too much into things.

Come on, don’t tell me I have to explain the title to you? A Volkswagen Beetle? This and the Volkswagen van held sway as the modes of transportation in the sixties. That and your thumb. And then to find one with flowers growing out of the trunk or boot? (And yes, it was a rear engine car.) So, on a totally different note, today is election day in the States. Or, as we call it at our house, the end of the world as we know it!
While testing an old manual Canon 55mm f/1.2 lens on a recently acquired Sony Nex-5T, my first foray into mirror less cameras, this rose in our garden seemed the only color around on a gloomy fall evening here on Long Island. I think the lens did a good wide open and manual photography brings me great joy specially shooting in monochrome.
