This book of photographs only is designed for quiet contemplation. You don't have to 'read' the whole book at once, but please enjoy it little by little. In this world of speedy everything, it is good to take the time to quietly study, feel, smell, enjoy all the senses that are evoked by simply and quietly looking at beautiful images of beautiful things. Orchids are colorful, sexual, sensual flowers that almost defy description. Why do we even try? Just enjoy! It gave me great pleasure putting this collection of photographs together for my own satisfaction and contemplation. I hope they fill your soul with well being, as they do mine. Thank You.
