This one is hard to photograph because it is so white it can be difficult to capture the detail in the white leaves. I needed to adjust the highlights and white in photoshop but I think the result is stunning.

Orchid Number One

At The Root of It All

This time of year The Phipps Conservatory features Orchids and Bonsai. Some of the bonsai are very old. Tis year however I noticed for the first time tiny sculptures at the roots of the bonsai.

A great place to visit on a cold winter day.

A “Hairy” Orchid at The Phipps

Since moving back to Pittsburgh we tend to visit the Phipps Conservatory regularly. In the winter they have the Orchid Show and each year I have taken photos of this spectacular orchid but the light has never been right to capture one of the visual details.

The orchid has tendrils that look like fine hairs. This year the light was perfect and I am finally able to say that this orchid needs a shave! These are the jokes folks.

Window Fashion in Milano

I am in the process of searching old images for post production. When I do this I frequently find images that I never shared or really studied at all. I never shared it because I found the window reflections annoying. Maybe they are but when I saw it I laughed out loud so the image works on some level.

This window was on a street in central Milan Italy not far from the Central Park.
