This is something a little different for me...
"Parched" is the 2nd image in a Triptych, but I think this one works on it's own.
In an attempt to cure my "photographers block" I went down the local Tesco and bought a bunch of "reduced to clear" tulips. I am certainly no still life expert, and as you would expect I wanted to do something a little bit different.
I didn't feel it was enough just to photograph a flower in a vase, so my aim was to try to inject some human emotion and interaction into this rather unlikely subject. the other two images and the final triptych can be seen in my PF. Please feel free to take a look.

Of the three images I like the composition of this one best.
An idea I must try sometime.
