  • Black on Black

    I was much taken with these excellent Black Tulips in our garden. They have only just opened, and not gone off yet. They have a very pleasing silky surface, but oh so difficult to expose!

    So, I dug out my black background cloth and did the best I could

    Yes - its that old Tamron lens again. And no - no flies in this shot

    Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
