After my first visit to the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Show several years ago, I discovered that I LOVE orchids. Every time I see a store that sells orchids, I have to step inside and check them out. The orchid world is so massive and beautiful that I am constantly finding out about orchids I’ve never heard of or seen before.

I especially love taking photographs of orchids, as they are a really great subject, what with all the crazy detail, shapes, and colors. There’s definitely something sexual about orchids that is also beautiful. Witness:

A note about photography on my blog: any photos, unless otherwise specified, are my own original photography.
