Playing around with some store bought Tulips and some glycerin water. Try to stay motivated and creative during winter is a lot tougher than I thought ! Hopefully spring will show up soon! What do you do to stay on your game, I would love to know,maybe you can inspire me to get off the couch and get shooting !

Hi Lorna,

Thanks for the "manufactured" spring uplift. I know what you mean about losing inspiration, I've been there, and sometimes I think I'll never come back around. But I'm starting to feel some of that rejuvenation coming up again. By the way, I always have a small spray bottle of glycerin and water in my camera bag. In Texas it is hard to find any dew.

The best medicine I've experienced for motivation is really looking at all the wonderful posts that come up on these boards. The people that take the time to make these memorable shots, whether manufactured or just moments of life captured for the heck of it really inspire me. The color, the light, the thought of what goes into some of these pictures behind the scenes makes me want to bend the lens and see how I can bring LB magic into my life.

My inspiration and motivation really comes from this LB community.

...it's like nailing JELL-O to a tree!

Hej Lorna,

Great shots of the tulips!
I took always my camera with me when I am on the way.
And with the lensbaby's you get always new ideas.
That's the way I stay motivated.

Nice tulips nice pictures. It doesn't seem you need inspiration at all, and winter itself can be a brilliant inspiration, beauty is in the small things that shine on a grey and gloomy day...!

Thanks all for the comments and suggestions, HP the beauty of photographing winter has worn thin ,it was great for the first few months now it is just snow!!! Funny enough I was so excited when we moved here because I had not shot snow much before ,but after six months of white stuff the honeymoon is over!!!! Still three feet of it outside right now more later this week , it will be a short growing season this year in the north. Oh well at least we are doing our bit for cooling the planet all this snow has too be of some benefit!!!! Cheers

Tulips and the Lensbaby. The perfect blend. Thanks for sharing.

Great images and I especially like the first one for its beautiful abstractness
