orchids…an oldie but goodie

Oh my goodness!!!  This one’s a throwback to 2010!!  But then again, orchids are a classic flower and just never go out of style 😉  I’m not sure how I managed to miss posting this one earlier, as it is one of my favorite macro flower shots.

This photo of these beautifully patterned orchids was taken in the Orchid Room at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh.  Oh, how I love that place.  Its the perfect place to get lost for a few hours surrounded by surreal flowers, landscaping, and warm sweet air.   Its also the perfect place to get married (or will be in 1.5 years, anyhow!!!!!).  Its also a veritable buffet for photographers looking for flowers as fodder for photos.  Wow!!  Say that 5 times fast!

Taken with my old Olympus camera that was stolen years ago (I can’t even remember the model!).

Stay tuned…photos of St. John, USVI are coming up SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

miles of manhattan…

And the computer is up and running!!  🙂  I can officially add Tech Master to my skills.  Many thanks to Jay for all his help.  Pharmacist and doctor-to-be saved a (computer) life!!

Anyhoo, lets get to some photography!  This lovely panorama of the Manhattan skyline at dusk was taken from Hoboken, NJ.  Click on the image to see it larger.  Not much to say about the picture except that it was the grand finale to a weekend in NYC.

Of course, I used the fabulous Canon Powershot G7.  I think the image was originally 6 or 7 frames that I then digitally stitched together, adjusted for contrast in Photoshop CS3, and finally, to top off the sundae with a cherry, I transformed the photo into an HDR image.  Enjoy!!!

A sweet romantic moment captured at Cherry Springs Park!  Everyone together now:  “Awwwwwww.”

Taken with an Olympus Stylus 820 with an insanely long exposure time.  Contrast was adjusted in Photoshop.  Enjoy!
