The Infinite Tulip
By Harold Feinstein

      “In teaching photography, my basic instruction is ‘When your mouth drops open, click the shutter!’” – Harold Feinstein

     Feinstein continues to say the tulips he photographed for this book gave him many mouth-dropping moments. Once you see them, you’ll understand. Feinstein photographs the traditional shaped tulip, the fringed edged, and those resembling the shapes of roses. Each is brilliant in color and sometimes adjusted to appear even more flamboyant. I found the wildness of the Double Circus Parrot intriguing, the Green Wave Parrot daring, and the Family Cluster beautiful. Spring Green, the side view and the multi tulip shot are my absolute favorites, and the Easter tulip reminds me of an oil painting.

      Tulips begin the growing season, and maybe that’s why I like to think of them as a sign of renewal. Beautiful heads of color and design waving in the breeze can be inspiring. Besides impressing me as art, The Infinite Tulip reminds me of spring, Easter, and gardening. When you fill that Easter or gardening basket for your parents or friends, consider including The Infinite Tulip.
