On photo.net - one of the photography sites I visit & participate at - we do a WedNEsDAy thread showing off recent work from the forum members. Requirement is simple - shot with some Nikon equipment. It can be a Nikon camera or Nikon/Nikkor lens combination with third party lenses & Fuji dslr camera using Nikon/Nikkor lens permitted. Files need to be a specific size max. 700 pixels width max & under 300Kb - so I have started a specific gallery for just such photographs for easy access for me. There are as always higher quality versions of these photographs within my galleries available for ordering should anyone feel like doing so though Zenfolio..... Enjoy
Meet Jamestown out of Glock's Johnson TN (Team Nijhof) KWPN standing in Holland. Jamestown is registered Oldenburg & got Premium status when he was inspected as a foal by the registry. Jamestown aka The JazMan or James was only 17 months old when we got him. He's born in April of 2013 and we brought him home late September 2014. With some hard work & lots of love I hope he'll become my new Dressage partner.
OK so photos have been requested of my little Venezuelan Dwarf Orchid. OK so the flowers are actually no more than 2 mm or less than 1/16th of an inch wide each. The complete plant is about 38 cm x 38 cm or 15 x 15 inches. It's attached to a piece of wood 11 inches long. The longest leaves are max 10 cm or 4 inches long & 9 mm or less than 3/8 of an inch wide. the orchid originates in Venezuela & is protected there. I've purchased it through an Orchid nursery here in California located in San Diego. But I bought it at the Huntington Library in Pasadena during an orchid show there. The nursery works with other nurseries around the world to preserve & share these special gems.... It's a dwarf - species is Scaphyglottis with a pink flower. I've had this orchid hanging in the window over the sink in our kitchen for about 4 years, since Ross was working on Criminal Minds. This is the very first time I see it bloom. But based upon the size of the flowers it's possible I've missed it blooming before. These are all shot with a macro (for anything micro or super small) lens. The last photos show more of the full plant so you can see the flowers in relation to the size of the plant.
