Default Orchid show and home shots

This weekend is the NH Orchid Society's annual show. My husband and I started out at 7 this a.m. to get there for the photographer's "time" before the show started. After a few pitstops on the way, we finally arrived with only 20 minutes to shoot before the show started. The time went quickly with me trying to check things out, take photos and shop for another orchid.

Here are a few shots I got before we had to leave. And, the last two are taken at home. The first a bloom from the orchid I bought and the other just the first few days growth of a cyclamen about ready to take off. I also noticed my hyacinth is blooming, too. But, didn't get any okay shots of it.

All taken with the K20 and Pentax 50mm 1.4 and Sigma 28-80. I should have brought my tripod in to the show and used it at home.

Patty

Edit: I removed the last one of the orchid I bought. These don't look as good online as on my laptop and that one is looking awful. I'll retake it tomorrow in natural daylight.

Nice shots Patty!

Evelyn and I got there at 1:00PM and they had no money to make change so there was a long line waiting to get in. After a 1/2 hr wait when we got in it became crowded really fast. Did you see many camera club members there?

Thanks, Jay, Rodney, Lou and John. I still think the 2, 3 and 4th could be sharper. I went to the beach today to test out the lens for Harriet and noticed my 18-55 seemed to be front focusing. I think the last time I'd done the testing they were all front focusing to different degrees.

Nice shots Patty. It's getting to that point in the year in our regoin when you start yearning to see some greenery (other than conifers) growing. I imagine the orchid show must have been a nice dose of "temporary summer."
