On Mother's Day my daughter, Kathi, had presented me with a pretty potted tulip. Tulips are lovely but unfortunately very short lived and in just a few days the fat flower buds had burst open, displayed their pretty tulip blossoms and then wilted into something less attractive.

Though the tulip was not at the stage that I could place it outside and out of mind, it was not the most joyous thing to look at either. That's when I was struck with an idea. It was a prime candidate for photo enhancement. After taking a few snap shots and playing around with my very rudimentary photo editing program I came up with these photos.

Photos above and below...These two enhanced photos are my favorite, I think they have an oriental quality to them and look more like artwork than photography. I am tempted to have one printed out, matted and framed, only trouble is I can't decide which one. They are similar yet very different.
