For my floral studies, I am always looking for the unusual. The Parrot Tulip met that requirement with their fringed, twisted and ruffled bloom. I created these images over a few days as the tulip bloomed. The tulip was white with slight green lines throughout the bloom. The darkroom printing of these images required extra care to maintain the rich write color of the tulip bloom.
