Tears of the Orchid

As I said yesterday, the Orchid Center at the Atlanta Botanical Garden is one of my favorite places.  The shapes and colors on these flowers are totally amazing!  There were a number of this variety showing off their beautiful blooms and glistening with water drops that are frequently sprayed on the plants in this environment.

I am glad that there are experts who know how to care for these plants and put them on display for people like me who have no idea how to do this.  I can sure appreciate them though and do my best to capture the beauty and share it with others.  We each have some talents and I know mine isn’t gardening.  Hopefully, the photography will make up for that lack.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
