Orchid Show

hello, hello! well, i didn't 'officially' win the new york botanical garden photography contest, but i did win when it comes having the most wonderful & supportive friends. once my photo got into the final round, the comment tally started all over again and i didn't want to ask for more comments. the winners have terrific captures and the second photo is interesting as it's a jade plant in bloom.

we went to the garden this weekend to see the orchid show and it was beautiful. this photo was taken with my fujifilm instax mini 25 and i'll have more later in the week.

xo, cindy

ps you can get a first listen of the new album from the dodos on npr and some other good ones, too.

Awe. You should have said something. No one would mind you asking.

i know, but i didn't like how the previous comments were not going to be included in the tally.

and, it was not my favorite photo from the set and i didn't want to be known for that image. this was my favorite along with some others i never even posted here because they kind of messed up the weeks - http://flic.kr/p/9eQKzv.
