Orchid heaven

Our hotel in Puerto Plata (Casa Colonial) had orchids growing like weeds in the courtyard area. It was such a sight for sore eyes! Below are some film snaps on the Minolta x370s on Portra 160.

  3. Very pretty.

    It is funny how we here in the North (Finland) have these plants in pots on our window sills.

    Happy Tuesday to you.

  8. really beautiful photos of Phalaenopsis, but they from Asia and not from central America, so they not grow naturally in the hotel, they are probably cultivated. Seems very beautiful this hotel!!!
