I adore orchids and this one just seemed to want to be shot in black and white film. I feel that this really captures the “personality” of an orchid.


white, black, flowers, nature, orchids, phalaenopsis

After surviving five brain surgeries and a stroke, I feel extremely blessed to be alive and want to share my photographs with the world. I see beauty in many places and try to appreciate it more via my camera. I have been selling prints of my work for several years and use any profit I make to take more beautiful pictures and donate to animal/environmental causes.
