Purple Orchid 1 - U.S. Botanic Garden- Caryn Esplin

Purple Orchid 1

The details on these purple orchids were intriguing, especially with the yellow background, so I couldn’t resist taking some snaps… even though the announcer at the U.S. Botanic Garden was telling all the stragglers to find the nearest exit because they were closed. Sometimes the best shots come on the way out the door at closing time. My daughter was patiently waiting outside the front doors. We headed toward the Metro, where she headed out to her Japanese class and I made a beeline to the tidal basin for some sunset shots of the cherry blossoms and monuments. I do love shooting in D.C. It is beautiful and fascinating with so many things to capture.
