Two red tulips
I was idly waiting in the queue for an ice-cream in the Half Moon Café in Roberts Park... They do very nice ice-cream and it was a warm day, so there was a long queue .... Anyway, my eye was drawn to these tulips, artlessly stuck on a shelf - away from some child's grasping little hand, I guess. (The vases are usually on the tables). The unconscious arrangement and the colours struck me as rather pleasing so I took a photo - a candid still-life, if you can have such a thing. I quite liked the photo as it was but then I started playing around with filters in Photoshop... I can easily get carried away! This is a touch of 'rough pastels' and a bit of vignetting. Oh, it's fun to play!
