I decided to quit procrastinating on making progress with getting my photo archives organized and updated. Rather than going through my folders by date, I’m going to tackle them by subject matter which will allow me to be a bit more efficient at least (fingers crossed).
I started with flowers for my first batch of work, I’m about halfway done with getting them all uploaded to the archives, and some in the flowers gallery here, and decided to share a few of my personal favorites while I was at it, as well as some recent ones that I have done as well.
This one had to go on the post as a favorite of mine. It was one of the earliest pieces I listed for sale and has probably sold more prints than any other image of mine to date. Aside from it being a popular photo, it was the first time I felt I was able to achieve the exact vision I was looking for in the finish touches and propelled me to take this hobby of mine further.
That and well, Orchids have always fascinated me and I love to study them from behind a macro lens. I can get lost in the tiny curves and folds always looking for the perfect angle or light to let them shine.
Another orchid shot made my personal picklist, but in contrast to the first, this one has never achieved such popularity. In fact, it has only sold a handful of times, and one of them was for me. I love the way this one looks on a shiner canvas in a dimly lit area. I have it in the corner of the bar in the basement along a showed wall, and it grabs the attention.
This one made it on my favorites list easily as I look at it every day. It is the largest metal print I have ever purchased for myself. And it is one of the tops in my collection in terms of awards and merits. I don’t do much in black and white either, so in that category, it is probably one of my better monochrome style images.
More often than not, if my wife is going to surprise me with flowers while she is out, they will be daisies of some flavor. I find they attract my lens more than any other, with the exception of orchids maybe.

Last but not least, here are a few of the flower pics I have recently done that came from my organizational attempt of getting everything into the archives. Here they will stay until they may gain a more prominent status. As usual, Follow me on Facebook if you want to keep up with all my new clicks.

My wife bought a camera just a month after I did, and it is delightful to have a new hobby that we can enjoy and grow together after 25 years of marriage. Being able to explore and enjoy the outdoors, nature, and local beauty together as a shared passion keeps us strong and interested in each other and exploring the subtleties and beauty the world has to offer.
