To the Orchid experts out there. I did not take the time to ID any of these orchids and I am no expert. If you can name any of these please do so by clciking on the photo and leaving a comment. You can do this anonymously if you so wish, but giving yourself credit cannot be a bad thing :-).
Day 2 of the Fascination of Orchids Show. Remembered to bring my tripod this time. I believe I got better shots. At least some of them were not out of focus :-). A surprise was in store as a very nice Vietnamese Fashion Show was at hand. Took several photos of the lovely young ladies in their beautiful hand made outfits. The outfits are called Aó-Daì (corect me if I am wrong). There are now 300+ photos. Day 3 will likely not add many photos as my family will be visiting with a Cousin I we have not seen in 45 years.
All of the photos in this album were taken at the Fascination of Orchids Show at the Orange County Fairgrounds on Friday Feb. 10, and Sat. Feb. 11 2006. I have shot this show for about 4 years now. I have never seen so many digital cameras at this event before. Rank amateurs to top pros were there. I will be going back Sunday to take more and add them to this gallery. All photos were taken indoors, hand held with no flash.
Initially there may be some duplication of shots. Once I find out which ones you like most I will delete the near dupicates.
