Phalaenopsis

This is a Phalaenopsis  Orchid or Moth Orchid as they are sometimes called. It had been blooming for well over 6 months and I’ve been watching the bloom age because it’s just getting better all the time. Thin and papery with delicate veining and lovely subtle colours. Some things age ever so gracefully.

Portrait Mashup

Yesterday’s photo shoot was done under moody grey skies with a beautiful subject and a few brief seconds of sun. This can result in some really interesting lighting. Not as much sun as I would have liked but we are into the grey days of fall. Welcome to October.
