37. Rainy Day

9 Comments

What does a photographer do on a rainy day when they are itching to take photos? Well I brought the outside in to my little studio. I went to an orchid show over the weekend and bought several really pretty new plants. I decided to experiment with my ice light and a black velvet back drop. I really need something to do!
