    All those cameras and films produce lovely pictures, but I’m partial to Fujicolor 200 pictures. Alas, can’t be bought for love nor money here.
    Since you post series here quite often, you might be in interested in Harald Mante’s book “Serial Photography”. It’s a good source of inspiration and ideas about putting together series of photographs. I’m reading it again with the idea of starting a project to get me out of my slump.

      Is it that Fujicolor 200 isn’t distributed in Korea, or that stock is perpetually out? It’s hard to come by here but not impossible. I bought three packs at the big-box store near me recently. Thanks for the book recommendation!

        I can find a bit of the film if I look hard enough, but most online shops limit sales to one roll or one pack per customer. Most of the ‘cheap’ films are rationed like that. I guess supplies are hard to get. I noticed yesterday that the new Fujicolor 200 is showing up in the online shops. And costs about the same as Portra. Yikes. The Kool Kids here don’t seem to be interested in professional films or black and white, so I can buy those quite easily.

          The Fuji200 that I’ve been buying is the pre-rebrand packaging, so I think it’s still the Japanese stock. I’ve shot more F200 than any other film, ever. I mourn the original stock’s passing.

    Tulips are always beautiful. But, living in “Tulip country” (where 1 tulip bulb was once as expensive as a house on the canals in Amsterdam), I’m probably biased.

      Tulips have been my favorite flower since I was a young boy. Unfortunately, every time I plant them in my yard, squirrels eventually dig up the bulbs and eat them. So I’ve given up.

        I totally understand. Would it perhaps be possible to grow some indoors? Where the squirrels can’t get to them?

        1. Jim Grey Avatar

          Maybe? I’ve never thought about it!

    I used to grow tulips – a long, long time ago. Even had some ‘wild’ ones, which are basically brown in colour. Not something you see around where I live now.

      I didn’t realize that there were wild tulips and that they are brown!

    Hard to decide among so many fine examples, but I’m going with the yellow ones in the pitcher.

      Thank you! I love it that my iPhone made that particular image.

    I too like the yellow ones in the pitcher the best.

    1. Jim Grey Avatar

      That’s a particularly fun shot for sure!

    Well these certainly provided some color on a gray, wintery day!

    1. Jim Grey Avatar

      That was the idea!

    Tulips are some of my favorite flowers but they never last long enough. Your pictures are so nice I can almost smell spring!

    1. Jim Grey Avatar

      I wonder if there’s a climate zone where the tulips last!

      1. brandib1977 Avatar

        Good question. One where there’s no wind! It’s always breezy here on my ridge and my tulips last for like three days.
