I was feeling really inspired by the writings of David duChemin yesterday, so I drank a bottle of good pinot grigio and photographed orchids, 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.
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 wife’s orchid garden. This plant is amazing, it keeps on blooming and never gets tired.
