D-74 Monochromatic Orchid

Our Aunt Pat bought these for my birthday, well actually, she funded these, I picked them out. I've always wanted Orchids but was a little leery because I don't really know how to care for them. Well the floral shop I frequent had them and I thought I'd try. Very unusual care because they don't like the cold but the directions says to water them 3 ice cubes once a week. ??? I'll have to research that further.
Aren't they gorgeous?

Thanks Aunt Pat!

Orchid Black & White


I'm loving this Project 365. I especially like that Tarsa Mars has suggested/recommended that we read our camera manual and study other photographers work. It has made a huge difference in my images.

Pages Read in the Nikon Digital field guide: 186-234 Real world applications & In Camera Editing.

Images viewed: Andre Bernardo Just amazing scenery and color.

Fantastic post! I would love to have an orchid! I'll know who to ask if I get one...the 3 ice cube thing is interesting.
This is beautiful work, Sandra! You are really inspiring me!

Lovely!! I like both of them! I've heard orchids aren't as difficult as they're rumored to be. I'm sure you'll do fine with them.
