This gorgeous white moth orchid (Phalaenopsis) was a post-surgery gift from some of my close friends at work. It is so pretty, I love it. It sits on the side table by my couch and its the first thing you see when you walk into my apartment.

So, it seems appropriate for a RegularRandom treatment with my macro lens.

The back side of the this orchid has pink tones, it’s really lovely.

Here are the RegularRandom rules, if you would like to join in with us.

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

    1. Thanks Lois! It’s coming along well. They warned me that it would take quite a while, and it is – frustratingly so – but I had a good visit with the physiotherapist last week and he is very happy with my progress, I’ve doubled my range of movement which is a very good sign. Still no strength in the shoulder and most of the arm, but it’s coming along with the exercises. Thank you for thinking of me x.

    1. Thanks Julz. I have one from a year ago which we have resurrected. It looks great, so we will see if it flowers again. This white one is still flowering and still looks like these photos, so fingers crossed!

    1. Thank you. I have a wall that I use for most of my photos at home. Sometimes I put up a little backdrop but I liked the simplicity of white here. I feel like my shoulder has improved a lot in be last week yay!


I'd love to hear from you!
