I found a couple of broken, half-dead tulips in my garden the other day. Instead of throwing them on the compost heap, I decided to try to revive them and put them into a vase of water. To my delight, after a couple of days they did recover a bit.
As they started to decay, I realised the flowers became more beautiful as their petals dried up. I took some photos of them with my husband’s stained glass window as a backdrop. I thought that the colours in his glass complimented those of the flowers.
I was delighted with the results, then the experimental in me took over and I turned them into black and white.
Now I’m not sure which I like best.
Do you think the colour photos are better than the black and white pictures?
