In 2016 LensWork hosted a fine art community book project called Seeing in SIXES. Nearly 1,900 6-photo entries were received and 50 were chosen for publication. Even though I expected the competition to be even more fierce this year I entered my own B&W photo set. For my subject I chose a walk through part of the conservatory at Longwood Gardens during the annual Orchid Extravaganza.
Longwood Gardens was started by Pierre S. du Pont in 1907. The original gardens have expanded to over 1,000 acres with a 4.5 acre conservatory. One of the annual events is the Orchid Extravaganza. I would like to take you on a walk through the East Conservatory to some orchids on display.
