garden : orchids galore
Hi Everyone -
Hope you all had a nice weekend! We saw some bumble bees, which was quite a surprise. Although we never got the apron (drat you Target!), we did see the most wonderful movie - Everlasting Moments (thanks again, Ambika). It takes place in Sweden in the early 1900s and tells of a women who wins a camera in a lottery. Her new found love for photography changes her life, including the relationship with her abusive husband. The movie is such a beauty - every frame could be a still photograph. I think you will absolutely adore it and relate to her creative passion whatever you choose as your medium - writing, photography, cooking, etc.
As previously mentioned, I took a few pictures at the New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show, along with quite a few people like the guy below. Check out his gear and his 'assistant' to the left. He was very serious and walked in like he owned the place. Not quite as it was very crowded and he was pretty much surrounded by the rest of us amateurs.
I did notice a lot of people using a flash with a cover on it. I'm not sure I'd like to go down that road because I really try to be a stealth photographer in order to minimize Scott's waiting around time, although he never complains. I bet it improves the pics though as I had quite a few that could have used a little bit more light. Sounds like another reason to take a class.
It was pretty amazing show and if there aren't enough pics for you, take a look over here for more. Happy Monday! This week is going to be busy, busy, busy ...
PS Come back tomorrow for a giveaway with Fifi Flowers.
