Cycles

From 2010 Blog
- On February 9th I posted a picture of my orchid on this blog. This is the first one that re-bloomed for me. I was proud of the both the amazing flower and the photo. Tonight's photo is of the same bloom 97 days later as it begins to fade away. Although a little sad, it is still interesting and I had its full wonder to appreciate for over three months. I can now understand why Orchid lovers are so passionate about these plants. Canon 40D, 1/160 sec @ f/6.3, ISO 800, 50mm macro lens.

Great photo David! My grandmother in Brisbane Australia grew lots of different orchids and was very "passionate" about them. So, how come you didn't have a booth at the Stockley Gardens festival this year?

Both photos of your orchid are simply beautiful! They should be framed and displayed as a pair. Gorgeous!!
