A sure sign of spring in this part of Oregon’s Willamette Valley is when the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival starts in Woodburn. I got lucky and found a warm overcast day with no rain for my visit….and I was joined by lots and lots of other people! There were still some daffodils out too. And the dogs in the yard across from the acreage just wanted to play. Even on an overcast day, the fields were just brilliant – a cacophony of color! It’s so much fun to watch people taking pictures of their kids, grand kids Moms, Dads, boy friends and girlfriends in among the blooms.
I like tulips, but what I really like to do is take pictures of people who are having their pictures taken by other people. It’s a form of street photography with much prettier backgrounds! Scroll down to enjoy the slide show and all the splashes of color so vivid that you may need your sunglasses!
