West Virginia

I cut these off my orchid since they were dying and it had put out new buds. I really have no idea how to care for orchids but this one seems idiot proof.

Tech notes: Mamiya RB67 with 90mm C lens. Kodak TMAX 400. Developed in Kodak TMAX developer, 7 minutes at 70F.

Beautiful tones and lighting on the wilted blooms~ Orchids really aren't as hard to care for as people think... I have 4 of them and they bloom faithfully twice a year :)

I always thought they were difficult but had one which delighted me with a second bloom. A lovely delicate image.

Great lighting and depth of field really emphasizes the softness and the fragility of these petals. Beautiful work Karen. "V"
