The last of the tulips were blooming at the botanical garden. Most of the colorful blossoms were fading, but in a quiet corner of the garden the sunlight was slanting through perfect white tulip petals, translucent against a dark wall. It was almost as if they were glowing from within. I fell in love with this photo, and did a few digital magic tricks, like adjusting to a brush texture and creating a mirrored pattern on a few items. This design would be especially beautiful in a sophisticated modern or a retro Art Deco setting.
