Flower stand
Flower stand
A Flower stand in the Bollenstreek, this stand is next to a road in a small town named De Zilk. Tourists stop here to buy flowers. The Bollenstreek (Dutch for "Bulb Region") is a region in the Netherlands consisting of areas in the provinces North Holland and South Holland that feature the cultivation of flower bulbs. The colourful flower fields that have come to symbolise Holland can be seen in these areas around April. The best known flower region extends from Leiden to Haarlem and includes the world famous Keukenhof in Lisse.
There are two main schools of thoughts about buying flowers. Number 1 is buy them to get out of trouble. Number 2 is buy them before you get in trouble. Well I believe in number 3. Buy them randomly, leave them around the house and don't mention who they're for or from. It is the much more fun than the traditional options. These are the first shots I've posted from the new Sigma 30mm lens. I love that 1.4 goodness.
