A lot of people in Pittsburgh buy poinsettia plants for Christmas. They are beautiful although poisonous and people tend to throw them away after Christmas. Another choice is a Christmas Cactus which is called that even though it is not actually a cactus.
They grow well as house plants in our area and if treated properly will bloom year after year. This one is in our bathroom in front of typical Pittsburgh glass brick.
Some friends stayed at our house over Thanksgiving while we were away. Being good guests they left this beautiful Orchid behind. At first I thought it was fake, nothing out of nature could look like that. However it is beautiful and natural. A perfect candidate to live in front of the glass brick in our new luxurious bathroom.
We have different types of glass brick windows in our new house. The light coming through the windows is amazing so yesterday I did a couple of quick test shots. The test shots proved the concept and although I don’t really like this image, I am excited to see what I can do with a tripod and additional lighting.
