When an Orchid Speaks

orchid-0092

pink

When two friends understand each other totally, the words are soft and strong like an orchid‘s perfume.

I took this photograph yesterday in afternoon light from my wifes orchid garden. This is amazing it keeps on blooming and never gets tired.

I was feeling really inspired by the writings of David duChemin yesterday so I drank a bottle of good pinot grigio and photographed , trying to hand hold the camera to a 1/40 sec for an aperture f/11 while chasing some amazing afternoon light. I long to be in Charleston and be back with “The Tree”, but I am still finding amazing things to photograph in my house.

    orchids are very sexual………perfectly designed to orchestrate both male and female participation…..better with pinot grigio
