Orchids – Chicago Botanical Garden

I’m not a flower person, but


This is just a quick, one image post, short story about my morning at the Chicago Botanical Gardens. 

I will do a longer version with more images but suffice it to say I shot 301 photos, deleted 91 (so far) and this is by far the best one.  No tripods today.  My 100mm macro & I don’t get along well when shooting macro without our friend the tripod.

We get lucky sometimes though. The best part, shooting with two friends I rarely get to shoot with.  (More on all of this later.)


I’d like to know what you see in this image?  Orchids are so interesting.

I have been taking photos ever since I received my first Kodak X-15 Instamatic Camera at the age of 10. In grade school, my best friend's father was a photographer, we got to "play" with cameras and in the darkroom. With camera in hand I was fortunate growing up to have traveled around the US more than most at an early age. Traveling gave me an appreciation for the world around me. I started seeing in a different way, different perspective and appreciating what I saw. As I got older I had the opportunity to travel a little bit overseas which opened up my eyes to other cultures and even more ways of seeing the world. Capturing these views and perspectives on film at first and now digital and sharing them is my passion. I am finally pursuing this passion and as they say - if you love what you do and do what you love you'll never work a day in your life. I see the world in photographs and love that my photography helps others to see the world around them in a new and different way.
