The New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show, Part 2

I've been going through more of my Orchid show photos since the last batch I posted, trying to pick out some new favorties to show you. This was one of my favorite parts of the show, a large display wall filled with white Phalaenopsis. It was simply gorgeous!!!!!

A close up, side view of the wall.

Photos of this wall were hard to get as the person who designed the show this year put a bench in front of this lovely backdrop of Phalaenopsis, so I had to do a lot of waiting to get photos without people in them.

Multi tiered square planters could be seen reaching toward the sky in many different locations throughout the show.

This particular planter is filled to the brim with Phalaenopsis Orchids of all different colors and varieties.

Orchids were growing.........

And Hanging from every available surface.

Floor displays were everywhere. Orchids were nestled in with all the other tropical plants that fill the conservatory.



I hope you enjoyed the second half of the tour!

Thanks , glad everyone liked the photos...it is such a beautiful show to see in person!!!

Jo, to answer your question...I sure have thought of photography at different times over the years. I've toyed with the idea of offering prints of my favorite photos on my website, although whether or not I actually do it remains to be seen.

I guess that is why I enjoy blogging....it gives me a place to show my photos at the moment. I really do enjoy photography as a hobby, it is so much fun.
