The Purple Tulip

Tulips have been cultivated for almost 1,000 years (there’s evidence in Istanbul from 1055!), and there are something like 75 different species of this intriguing flower.

What did this image teach me?

That sometimes the camera to hand is the best one for the job – this shot was taken by thrusting my phone into the heart of the tulip, getting closer without disturbing the petals than I may have achieved with a larger “real” camera (I hate that phrase, but you know what I mean).
