Macro Monday!

Like I mentioned before, we went to the Botanical Gardens on Saturday and it was awesome.  It was cold and damp that day but that didn't take away from the beauty of the flowers.  One section was devoted to tulips of every color, it was like a rainbow threw up on the ground (how do you like that imagery ha ha).  And I learned something too..if the tulips have already bloomed and then it is cold, tulips close up, so unfortunately most of them were "in hiding."  But I got sneak peak of a few of them.  I will definitely be making another trip out there soon on a warmer day.

These are a few of my favorites from that day..

I love the water droplets on this one.  So pretty and delicate.

And I love the bright pink and contrasting vibrant green in this photo.

I wanted to include these to show you just how many tulips there were..It was beautiful!  I am definitely going to have to plant a bouquet of these in my yard.
Guess what??  This is my 100th post!  Woo hoo!  I am so grateful that I started blogging because it reignited my passion for photography and it serves as a wonderful creative outlet for me.  I appreciate each and every comment I receive and enjoy browsing other people's sites for inspiration.  So, thanks for being there along the way with me!

As soon as my Facebook page reaches 500 "likes" I will be doing a giveaway so why don't you head on over there and "like" Marci Bruno Photography!  Everyone likes free stuff, right?!

Congrats on your 100th post! AND OMG tulips are my favorite! Although my poor tulips are taking a beating on my front porch, high winds/heavy rains are just not doing them good. I hope they can make it through!

Beautiful photos.

I've written and asked permission to use your photos before, and I've found another one I'd like to use. That Ok? It should go up this week and, if ok, I'll write and let you know when it is up. It is one of the sun.
