tulips (rosendal)

The above was shot, I think, purely random. It’s funny how the most random photos, the ones shot without thinking and without planning, (sometimes) turn out to be the ones that fascinate me most afterwards. When I think, I don’t get pictures like this one. I should think less. Chance more. Take chaos seriously. Never mind the dirty window. Watch the sun make things come alive, even when there is impurity. The dirt just makes it better, doesn’t it?

I like how they make tulip chaos at Rosendal. Wonderful, disorganized chaos of colour. I’ve never seen such wild tulip chaos anywhere else. Last year, there was an entire flowerbed. This year, only a small greenhouse, which I caught in the evening sun a couple of weeks ago.

Edit: some photos in larger versions on flickr!
