“Old Flame”

“Old Flame”

“Love, they said, burns you
and builds you.
But with you,
there’s no ash.
Just light.”
― Kamand Kojouri

I honestly could not think of a better title for this image of the same tulip that I shared yesterday. According to my mother-in-law she has had this variety of tulip in her gardens for some time, thus the ‘old’ reference. Also, I can’t get the image of a flame out of my head when I look at it. The mix of silky red and coral tones in the light are just stunning to me and it seems almost alive with movement.

This image was made yesterday evening, and the tulip, true to its nature, had begun to close back up again, accentuating the look of fire. I thought the side view would also provide a different and better view of this unique tulip, variety unknown.
