Summer at The Phipps

Its still not to late to see the Summer Garden at The Phipps Conservatory. In addition to all your summer favorites, there are some less flashy yet interesting plants to see.

I especially like plants that look like other things. This bromeliad looks like a star. And the plant below that almost looks like lace. The Phipps is one of Pittsburgh’s cultural treasures and deserves at least a couple of visits each year.

Succulent Blooms

This type of succulent which I believe is some sort of aloe plant was in full bloom in February. This was taken at the Los Angeles Arboretum in the Aloe Garden on February 14, 2017.

The Devil’s In the Details

Although I consider myself to be first and foremost a photojournalist, I like all sorts of photography. I love photographing animals,sports contests,concerts and scenic views. Sometimes though, the devil is in the detail. Macro and closeup photography provides a different perspective and view of the world. I love photographing architectural patterns and closeup photography of plants and foliage. One of these succulent leafs is beautiful all by itself but when you photograph the foliage of many, the plant itself changes into a natural mosaic. This was photographed at Chicago’s Garfield Conservatory. You can buy a print of this image by clicking here.
