Picture This #257 ~ Pairs

A pair of orchid blossoms at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Water lilies
A pair of faces in the water ~ Prospect Park


  1. Hi Debby!! Fabulous shots for this week's theme!! Beautiful orchid flowers in the first shot. Those water-lilies are stunning, I've never seen them that colour before!! What a strange place to have sculptures, in the third shot.

  2. Hi Debby! I'm in awe... yessss! Beautiful twin orchid blossoms... love their colours! Water lilies are always captivating... whenever I see them I feel drawn to just sit or stand and contemplate... Your capture is wonderful and I don't remember to have ever seen water lilies of that colour... Unusual place to display sculptures but I am not surprised. It reminds me of a similar one not far from my place. A pond in front of the Maritime Museum, in which two or three navigators' faces live together with water-lilies...

  3. Three very unusual shots - interesting

  4. Alle drei aufnahmen begeistern mich !

  5. Vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Worte, Jutta. K

    Thanks Mitch, Belita, Anders and Pat.

  6. Gorgeous pairs. I have never seen a water lily flower that colour!

  7. Hi Debby - sorry to be so late to comment on your gorgeous pictures. Orchids are a favorite of mine and those yellow and maroon ones are wonderful. Love the water lilies, but my favorite is the faces in the water. An intriguing and haunting capture. Like something out of a fantasy story.
