I am in love with my new canon 60D camera. Perhaps even more special are the first ever long awaited blooms from my lovely orchid plant. Four blooms to be exact, the first started only a few weeks before Christmas and the last bloomed on Boxing Day. Orchids rarely bloom - in case you were wondering. It's like a Christmas/Birthday/New Year miracle. So for my first photo shoot it seemed only appropriate to capture my very own budding rare rebirth. Here's hoping 2012 brings everything 2011 didn't! Happy New Year!
