Capturing the Boulder Brilliance of Spring Flowers: Nature’s Brushstrokes

Spring is without question “Boulder Beautiful.” Flower colors are what I would call “out of the tube” colors. I’ve hopefully captured some of the special magic of spring colors in these snapshots. This group is from our back yard. Enjoy!

Flowers remain fascinating even in their final days of existence. We would do well to emulate that.

I love color! My oldest friend refers to “Frieling Colors.” He’s referring to saturated bright colors “right out of the tube.” My sisters and brother share this family trait with me. That the only thing that I have in common with Vermeer. He like his paint unmixed, right out of the tube.

The late Dr. Roger Tsein was a great man. I knew him as a Jr. and Sr. in High School, Livingston New Jersey. I did not know him well, He was so far ahead of us, and so much smarter, that he taught our organic chemistry class for a day here and there. He worked at Bell Labs as a child, on the weekends. As an adult, his team invented color for brain imaging. He was awarded a Nobel Prize for his genius and his efforts. I am not alone in saying that he’s the smartest person I’ve met.  Rest in colorful peace my friend.

He was asked once why he had chosen this specific field of endeavor and study. “I like color!” As the great Dr. Roger Tsein said, “I like color.” Spring is in so many ways the best season of the year for color. It provides an excuse to take pictures of flowers. And now it means the ability to share some of those pictures with a (hard to get my head around) LARGE audience.
