The tulips the bloke gave me that are entirely unrelated to Valentine's Day have reached my absolute favourite stage in their evolution. Their petals have acquired a delicate, crepey texture and the appearance of watered silk. I had to get out the macro lens to try and do them justice. I didn't manage to capture them to my satisfaction, but as I have to keep reminding myself, perfection isn't the point of this project. Completing it is.
