I have no idea who did this arrangement that was entered into a contest during a convention in Orlando, back in the early 90's. I liked it so much that I kept the pix all these years. The "umbrella" is made of eleagnes branches, and the base of the arrangement (below) has proteas, anthuriums and orchids. I hope you can make it larger and see the detail.
Here I am posing with one of my brides, eleven years ago. For me, the important part of that photo was the bouquet, but since photographers focus on people (unless you tell them otherwise), this one cut off the bottom of the cascade bouquet, of which I was so proud!!
My daughters, posing for a class of NCSU photography students in 1978. They were in the Raleigh Rose Garden. If you haven't been there, give yourself a treat next spring and go! The funny thing about this picture is that although they cooperated with the photographer and snuggled their heads together, they were (and still are) like oil and water. The few times they were this close to each other, it usually ended in pain and screaming. The older one is still mad at the younger one for making her the middle child. I'm hoping that sometime before I die, I will see them embrace and admit their gratitude and love for each other, but I'm not holding my breath.
Also in 1978, I drew this from a comic. I often felt the same way back then. This has been on my bulletin board for 30 years. Hardly anyone looks to me for guidance anymore (Thanks God!), so I think I can safely toss it now.
