The end is near....  by Bob Daalder

Currently unavailable for purchase

These once were bright and vibrant tulips of which I have made some lovely, colourful photo’s… but now…. the end is near…. and to give them a last respects I photographed them for the last time before I throw them in the garbage can….

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…

    Prachtig Bob!
    Wij hebben een bos van die ‘afgetakelde tulpen’ in de kamer op tafel staan. Maar ze zijn in deze toestand nog zo mooi, dat ik ze niet weg kan doen….
    Groeten en fijne dag!

  • dank je Hans…. niet weg doen maar wel je fototoestel pakken om het vast te leggen (mijn advies ; ) )
