I'm really looking forward to going to South Africa this summer, and for all the cool photo opportunities I'll have there.
Very nice, Thora!

That is a gorgeous flower, Thora, what is it? Looks like some kind of lily?
I can't wait to hear all about your So Africa adventures!

Thanks!

Carek - I have no clue - I know nothing about flowers. I just saw it in a park, and thought it would make a good picture.

I took a lot of pictures in my grandparents' garden last weekend. These are some of my favourites:

Is it a Bird of Paradise? It's beautiful, no matter what.

Ava: gorgeous! I especially like the Lily of the Valley photo.

No it's not a bird of paradise. There are several white Hawaiian flowers and there are several kinds of lilies that look similar but in different colors. I love Hawaiian flowers, they are so beautiful.

Yeah, not birds of paradise ... I thought I knew what these were, but don't. The flowers almost look like honeysuckle-type flowers, but they look like they're on a stem, not a vine. Could be some sort or orchid? White ginger?

Not white ginger...I still think it is some kind of lily. I should try to find out. This has got me so intrigued now.

Let's go to Paris! These were taken in May of 1996 with an old regular film camera, so quality isn't that good. I'll start with my favorite place, Pere Lachaise cemetery -- I could spend days in there!

A little dark:

Another Pere Lachaise (and I have photos from 2 other trips there, so you people are in for a potentially long haul ... ) I can't imagine how many pink roses are on this crypt!
