Hi maria!
I often see the flowers like this picture in Japan,too.
the flower is expensive. So we use it for some celemony or something.
For instance, when someboday opens a cafe or company, we give the person the flowers like this.

By the way your work is a kind of low. you're so smart!

Very creative, I imagined the orchids growing out of the frosty limbs. Four Stars for you.

Sie sehen so zart und zerbrechlich aus mitten in den "beeisten" Zweigen. Ein wirklich tolles Bild! Fast wie im realen Leben.... zarte liebevolle Geschöpfe inmitten einer kalten frostigen Welt... :), naja, so könnte man es auch assoziieren. Du hast wirklich ein tolles Auge für Besonderheiten und richtig schöne Momentaufnahmen! Einen schönen Start in eine entspannte wunderbare Woche wünscht Dir Kessi

Sometimes that is the only way to do it! However, the results looked good enough.

Leora said...

Lots of whites...some interesting reflections in your second photo! Adds to the interest. A nice flower to feature.

You did good taking the pictures through a window. The limbs looks so strange.

Reader Wil said...

A friend of mine had exactly the same orchids! You made a beautiful set of photos!

Z'riz said...

Woah! You did a good job of taking pictures. They look so clear despite the store window! Cool idea!

Mine is blooming here

Now that's going for the photo!
Clever idea and the first image is beautiful - worth trying to shoot through that window.

Sandra said...

Maria - that's one really original flower approach, great idea! Thank you for your visit and greetings from Croatia :-)

Arija said...

What a pity that was in a flower shop, I had hoped you were enjoy ing that lovely virginal white aorchid at home!

VALKYRIEN said...

Amazingly delicate orchids! I first thought I saw branches covered with snow in the front! Clever and great capture!

Elizabeth said...

Orchids are always rather classy and lovely.

The images of the flowers are very clear, especially when you took them through a glass window. I also like the way the window mirrors the outside world. 10 out of 10 for originality.

Raven said...

Love the photos and they came out great seeing they were shot from a window. I love the 'ice' on the stems - very different.

Titania said...

Good Morning Maria, It must be good fun to go out in the morning in search of flowers. With those photos you show that you found your perfect choice. Interesting and beautiful the white Phalaenopsis in their glacial surroundings.

orchids are my favorite flowers, so of course I like yours :)
I have two blooming ones at home, and one is about to open up: I'm very excited.

These are beautiful flowers. Come over, I have several awards for you.

Tammie Lee said...

ooh such lovely orchids. Is that frost on the branches outside the window?

blossom said...

I like the combination of the white gorgeous orchids and the frosty twigs.

Small City Scenes said...

Very pretty. Orchids are a good choice for flowers today. MB
