So you won't have to break your neck reading this, I've printed it here:
~ The Tulip ~
Tossing turban style contours, with an aloofness as one passes by,
Utilizing every charm it possesses, under a lupin blue cloudless sky,
Like a guardsman, gallantly standing, holding up his noble head high,
In rainbow colours, brilliant and stately, a vision to surely yield a sigh,
Ponder thus upon the regal tulip, it has pure beauty, you cannot deny.
The Tulip ~ by Ernestine Northover
Having to turn the print to read the verse, causes it to yield three different views. Purely accidental. :-)

I am a freelance photographer, with emphasis on 'free.' I like to shoot special events and Boats and share the pictures with anybody interested. Most of my images are captured around Historic Olde Towne, hence the name. Sometimes I slip down to the seashore for therapy, so you'll be treated with a few beach pictures from time to time.

May you always have a gentle breeze and following seas.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. ---------- Mark Twain
"The difference between the recorder photographer... and the artist photographer... is that the artist will, by experience and learning... force the camera to paint the imagination... the emotion... the concept and the intent... rather than faithfully and truthfully reproduce an unnatractive and unflattering record." Edward Augustine Cranfield - 1966

"Photography should be an adventure, not an anxious discipline in which everybody is constantly graded for performance."
When the tide goes out, we'll be able to see who has been swimming naked.
