Seagrove, North Carolina is a small town known for its rich pottery traditions and many amazing, local potteries. But, on a recent trip I discovered another wonderful Seagrove site - the Seagrove Orchids. The greenhouse was filled with rows and rows of beautiful and colorful orchids. Of course, I immediately spazzed out with my camera!
My good ol' film camera did a great job of capturing the true colors of these amazing flowers. Besides a little cropping I kept the original photos...no fancy Photoshop coloring or black and white conversions. I love post-processing and coloring techniques, but my creative subconscious kept saying, "Let the subjects speak - leave it alone!" So I did...and I'm very glad.
While flipping through the photos I could literally smell fresh flowers. Crazy how photographs can play tricks on your senses. Here's to a bright week ahead and to remember to smell the flowers along the way.
