Houston Orchid Society Show

The Houston Orchid Society had a very successful annual show at the Houston Natural History Museum last weekend.  I do not grow orchids but I enjoy going to their show to marvel at those unusual and highly colorful orchids, not the typical Phalaenopsis orchids sold in supermarket and regular nurseries.

Our Houston Chinese Bonsai Society secretary, Mr. KS Chong, is also a vice-president of the Orchid Society; he and his wife, Winnie, were in charge of this year’s displays. The orchids were set against black cloth backdrops. Anyone taking photos, regardless of their skill levels, would end up with very pleasing and highly contrasting photos of the flowers and background. In fact, the following photos were taken with just my phone camera.

Please enjoy the following photos:
