Tulip Festival

I know it can be a little cheesy and "touristy," but for the past couple years Airika and I have gone up to the Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon, WA. Right around this time of year the tulip fields absolutely explode with color, and everyone and their cousin goes up there to take pictures of each other in front of these flowers. As a photographer, I love the challenge of coming to a place like this--not necessarily because it's such a picturesque place, but because it is usually quite challenging to get an interesting, unique, or unobstructed shot with throngs of people lining up to get their pictures taken. It's one of those things that I would highly recommend doing once, just so you can see these fields for yourself. For a lot of people, seeing it once is enough because it pretty much looks exactly the same every year. :) Airika and I, however, go back just about every year. Even though we know exactly what we will see when we get there, it's always nice to walk around outside on a beautiful spring day and take pictures.... enjoy!
