A while ago we went to an Orchid exhibition with lots of gorgeous Orchid creations – or I might call it creatures, because you can spot all kind of creatures in the center of the Orchids. Totally incredible!

Even if you aren’t that interested in Orchids, bare with me to the end as I promise you that you will find those Orchids much more exciting than you could imagine!!!

This Orchid exhibition were held in a small greenhouse situated right outside the Åkeshov’s Tunnelbanestation (subway) here in Stockholm. It’s not big, but nice anyway.

It was difficult to take photos there, the lighting were not good and my best camera did go on a temporarily strike, very annoying when you have paid the entrance fee already.

Luckily I’m always well prepared and had my point-and-shoot-camera with me and of course, Mr Lifecruiser always has his camera too. We’re both photo freaks.

Who wouldn’t feel happy after seeing this huge smile?


One of my favorites, which I call the red onion:


What about this magnificent Eagle with wings:


Did you know that Orchids is connected with skiing? Yes, it’s true! Just look at those photos, with a lot of skiiers ready to go downhill!


Or what about this skiier with wings – and a kind of parachute?


This one is so cute, it’s a skiing TEDDY BEAR!


Well, sometimes skiiers have accidents and falls right on their butts, like this blushing skiier. *giggles*


I’m sure you have seen the leopard creature before, but it doesn’t make it less amazing!


I love this Goggles creature and the ghost creature:

Finally, we’ve come to another more sexy part of the exhibition, the exhibitionists…!!!

First the verrry sexy woman:


….and something very attractive female:


…and you tell me what this one looks like! *giggles*


This last photo, I somehow wanted to turn upsidedown all the time….

    LOL you have quite the creative and imaginative eye! The Orchids are lovely and what you’ve pointed out in them make them all the more interesting.

    I have two Orchids, but they haven’t bloomed for over a year. One has a lot of air roots though and it’s beginning to look like some kind of strange glossy spider. I keep meaning to take a shot of it because it’s so strange looking.

    very creative and humourous way of introducing those beautiful orchids! I often see orchids in my country, in fact, one of the species is our national flower. I never thought the effect of close-up photos of orchids is so nice! =D Will try that next time!

    Jeni Hill Ertmer said:

    Orchids and skiing, huh? Now there’s a combo that would never have come to my mind until you mentioned it and not only that, proved it too! Loved the Skier falling down orchid!

    Ling said:

    Neat! Most of them look like aliens cross-bred with butterflies. :mrgreen:

    Incredible, aren’t they? I met a Cambodian woman who sells orchids at a little shop. Turns out she’d always had orchids in her native land, and when she immigrated to the US, the one thing she missed was her favorite flower. So she started to cultivate them again, and it just opened up all sorts of new paths for her to follow. It was her entry into meeting other Americans, making friends. A nice way to go!
    By the way, I’ve got a post up about a 16 year old circumnavigating the world by himself! Thought you’d like the travel bit.

    Well Captain,
    Thank you so much for worrying about me. Life has indeed changed…career, work and the overall agony of two kids in college and Wall Street falling apart!

    These pictures are astounding…and I want to thank you for remembering me…you have a way of bringing me back to life.

    Thank you!

    Hi Orchid Lover, yes you! I’m one too, but I’ve never seen the flowers photographed like yours. You have caught all their peculiarities–and there are many. Drop by my flower blog when you have a moment. Thanks.
