Floral 2000

Since I've been a member of the Nevada Camera Club, I have had so many opportunities to photograph many different things and go many places that might otherwise be inaccessible.  One of our members, Harriet Smith was a florist for many years.  She owned five shops at one time.  Harriet retired in 1999 and her two daughters took over the two stores she had in Vegas. One is a wholesale floral shop and the other is a retail floral shop. The other day, we were lucky enough to be invited to come and take a tour of the wholesale shop and photograph flowers.  There were several displays that were set up with lighting and background so that we could capture the simplicity of each flower.  The store was huge and I was really amazed at all the work that goes into each flower arrangement and the business side of the shop. 

I took over three hundred pictures, but as always I can only post a few.

Lots of lighting on this one.

These baby roses were my favorite, so small and tiny.

Baby roses sprayed with water.

These were the orange colored roses and I played with my editing software to get this look.

These are the baby roses turned into abstract.
I like it.


  1. As you know I am very addicted to taking photos of flowers. They are the challenge to me if getting that unique photo.
