A couple of photos
This first one is her other Christmas cactus. I guess it rarely blooms so we were really surprised when this one came out. Both of these photos were taken with the 18 - 200mm zoom lens hand held on my Nikon D200 camera. I know it would be better with the tripod and a smaller f/stop for greater depth of field, but I need something quickly and the tripod was at my house.
I don't know what this flower is but it is tall and the leaves are long and pointy, kind of like palm leaves. It is very delicately colored and with it against the white wall & mini-blinds it doesn't exhibit a lot of contrast. But I kind of like the plant and the photo.
I have over five boxes of Wizard of Oz things that are Annie's collection, including a few first edition books from 1903 - 1904. I have found a heated storage locker that I can rent to store things in so will do that & move them to the house to sell on eBay or whatever. There are a lot of photos and photo albums that I want to scan and that will take time so rather than trying to take them all to Pat's house at once I will store them in the locker, then work on a box at a time. Digital images sure take up a lot less storage space!
Oh my, that second flower shot is gorgeous!
Best wishes to you and Pat as you begin the next chapter of your lives together.
