After my first visit to the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Orchid Show in 2009, 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.
A note about photography on my blog: any photos, unless otherwise specified, are my own original photography.
I am currently a Washington, DC resident, but I have not changed the name of my blog. Brooklyn is where I was living when I fell in love with orchids and started writing about them, so Brooklyn Orchids it shall remain.
In case you’re interested, I also have a separate personal blog. I talk about beauty, skin care, pop culture…whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. You can check it out over here or visit sarahheiman.com for more info about me.
