stream of consciousness

While eating breakfast, I saw Matt Lauer on the Today show in Holland in the middle of a tulip field and the song was playing "Tiptoe through the Tulips". I knew I had to go see some tulips and remembered that last year at Logan Circle there were glorius tulips. With the tulips in the background, the fountain in the background, and the sun just sinking behind the Franklin Institute refracting light all over I could potentially reach ecstacy. It was not to be. No tulips-just low pansy-assed flowers. So what else could I shoot?

Maybe drugs would work faster.

This I really like. I love the fountain sprays, and the girl lost in thought. There is a wonderful mood, enhanced by the excellent tones of the b/w.

An engaging image that evokes many possibilities. I like it.

I think it's the blur that takes it over the top for me.

Not a strong story here (except for the Faulkner connection), but I love the softness and BW processing.
