I have photographed a lot of orchids. I absolutely adore them. I never tire of their endless variations.

But THIS orchid is special. It's the first orchid plant that I have been able to winter over to spring flower! It's not for lack of trying. I have scores of orchid pots all over the house. I buy them all the time, and after the blooms die off, I set them aside ... and hope!

The one pictured above is the first to bud and flower, Subhan'Allah.

I'm so thrilled. Isn't it lovely, Masha Allah?!!

On another note, I hate the quality of images uploaded to Blogger. They always look so dark. I have been fighting switching to Wordpress ... will have to think of something, Insha Allah.

Lovely flower, mashAllah.

Have you tried brightening your pictures artificially with picasa before uploading them ? Perhaps that will work.

Salaam alaikum,
I love your photography and I really think they should be in gallery, a book, and a calendar. Muslim Art, American Muslim creative cultural expression, they lighten the spirit and serve as signs of Allah's majesty.

Jazaka Allahu Khayrn Everyone

the orchid now has seven blooms on it Masha Allah.

Magari - special thanks to you. You happen to be married to one of the best Muslim photographers and graphics designers Masha Allaah. So, your comment is especially meaningful dear sister.
