Art In Bloom

Art In Bloom 2015-03-08 2

I don't see myself as a pretty pictures photographer. More of a street shooter with a taste for irony or the simply odd. Nevertheless, this week is all flowers.

There were two floral events to shoot this weekend. One was the orchid show at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The other was Art In Bloom at the Saint Louis Art Museum. It might be the second year they have done this - a weekend of flower arrangements made to complement the museum's treasures.

Next Saturday is our big, raucous St. Patrick's Day parade. Until then we got les fleurs.

Real pieces of colorful art and the second one looks as if it is run away from a painting.

I'm pretty partial to les fleurs Bob, so I will enjoy this and next few posts very much!

I went to the orchid show one year and loved it.
