Well, it’s taken me over a week to unload the bulk of the hundreds of photographs I took at this years Philly Flower Show. Today I will cover the vendor shops displaying their wares within the show, and finish up tomorrow with the lovely Hawaiian themed miniature room showcases.
And, finally, the Point When I almost Lost it:
This young Irish guy is trying to demonstrate weatherproof leather garden boots – - -
- – - and I decide to photograph the young guy modeling these boots, standing with one boot in a plastic pan of water… I used to have a horse in rainy Washington State, where it rained over 300 days a year. Leather boots, though haute cool, were just impracticle for this mushy muddy climate…I bought the less cool weather and water protected vinyl western boots to handle my horseing needs. That there was a new product that promised additude protection plus dryness seemed important. I tried to line up my shot, but the human flood of bodies closed in, knocking me out of range and focus…I finally broke down and began swearing, also wondering how soon we could get to the wine and liquor tasting zone :)
The last photo post will include the miniature displays.
