Thursday I was lucky enough to attend the NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle (on through tomorrow, Sunday). A great show! I liked it better than previous ones and thought the orchid displays were particularly extravagant. Very worthwhile, and what a photo op for a flower photo junkie like me. It does help to have a camera that does well in low light, though (I use a little Canon S90), and I recommend a monopod to help brace you for those longer exposure shots. Much less intrusive than a tripod and easier to set up and carry, too. You don’t get the rock-still support, but it still helps.

Visit Pink Saturday, Macro Friday, SOOC, Today’s Flower and Macro Flower Saturday for more wonderful photos. Click on Sara’s Fave Photos to see more here.
