Tulip, Garfield Park Conservatory Flower Show, 2005

It's spring, it's spring, and soon color will be back in the landscape and the earth will wake up, and with it, my eyes.
This tulip is blooming indoors. But it won't be long before the outdoors catch up. At least, I hope not.
Of course, leave it to me to spend time photographing tulips in Chicago a week before I go to Holland.
The Portfolio Case
The exterior is finished, and here it is. To give an idea of scale, the prints next to it are 8 x 10s. The bear (his name's Aethelbert) usually goes to Europe with me and considers himself part of the artistic process, so he insisted on being in the shot.
