No Tulip For You!


I had a fantastic day with Bethany and the famous Uncle Robert and Aunt Sylvia. We went to the Tulip Festival and had a wonderful time together. I'll tell you more about it tomorrow, but right now I'm really tired. Needless to say, we took lots of pictures of tulips. However, I'm not going to post a tulip photo tonight because I haven't had time to review them in detail. I'll find a good one for you for tomorrow.

Today's photo is another picture of that Volkswagen junker I showed you a couple of days ago. I decided to keep this one in colour because I really liked the green and rust on the small car. I think that (for the most part) the green car keeps the eye on the subject and does not allow the colourful containers to be too strong of a distraction. The tight cropping helps too. The foreground bugs me a bit, but that can't be helped. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure why I like this photo, but I do. So there.

Now that I've seen the color version I prefer this one over the b&w :).

I think color was a great choice for this one. The colorful containers add to the pic, they do not distract from it.
