I think I annoyed a lot of people with this photograph. These white flowers were the very first orchids you come across when entering the MOBOT orchid show. Naturally, many people that go to the show want to smell every single flower. It’s difficult to smell a flower if a big guy fiddling with his camera is blocking your way. I was fiddling with my camera here because I thought, “meh, white flowers, boring, no one will mind if I take 20 photos of this thing to get my settings right.” I was wrong. I don’t apologize though, there were hundreds of other orchids smell.
Orchids smell like flowers.
