colors of a day

tulips, fences and bokeh

“People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them. ”

~ Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

  1. I love this quote, and how very true it is.
    Not sure about a colorful weekend here.
    We are getting a tremendous amount of rain. 😦
    May be a good weekend to curl up with a book.

  2. Very beautiful! Love how your background is vibrant and foreground is muted… just the opposite of normal garden photography. Bravo!

  3. Really beautiful colors and crisp focus/DOF in this shot, just a wonderful, wonderful photograph ~ your blog is full of them 🙂

  4. “A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors”. That’s a great phrase and it’s so true. Your image illustrates that wonderfully – there’s such vibrancy in those tulips set off so well against the jewel-like background of light and colours!

  5. Congrats to you Susan on being included on Otto’s top photography blog list! So happy for you!

  6. Beautiful color for sure and lovely bokeh. And the quote is perfect and from one of my top ten books! And yes, congratulations!

  7. You have a distinctive way with light – there always seems to be a lot of it, and a certain sparkle and roundness and vibrancy. These simple tulips are full of that, and joy. 🙂

  8. Very colourful – a riot of Spring colours!! 😀 I love the quote too – strange coincidence, I just watched ‘The Book Thief’ as a film the other day – very good story! 🙂

  9. This photo is so wonderful Susan….I “faved” it on Flickr….it is just gorgeous!! It is so nice to have sunshine, flowers, green grass, and everything that says springtime. This would be just beautiful hanging on a wall!! Sigh!!
