Atlanta Botanical Gardens—Orchids and Such

Walking into the Fuqua Conservatory, one is met with a wall of humidity and the smell of moist earth. A few steps more, and one enters the Tropical Rotunda, where I spent most of my visit. Home to exotic tropical plants, the rotunda feels like another place, another time. Orchids cascade down the sides, and colors seem to explode from within the dense foliage. On my visit, people were everywhere, so taking people-less shots required waiting and relying on the consideration of strangers. Of course, the flowers were lovely.  (All images Canon s95.)
