Theme Day: Best Photo of 2010

Happy New Year's!

Today is theme day worldwide for City Daily Photo Bloggers.

On New Year's Day, each person selects and shares the best photo they posted all year.

I chose this macro of the interior of a colorful orchid. You can hardly tell it is an orchid.

It looks like an amusement park ride. Or, it looks like a modern piece of art. The top section hanging down that is all white looks like a torso of a person. I really like this macro image.

Get in the festive spirit by checking out travel photos of holidays in Santa Fe, New Mexico at Viva la Voyage!

I have not studied the inside of an orchid from such a close perspective. Your cameral lens reveals more than the naked eye.

Stunning. You are so right, you can hardly tell it's an orchid. The colours, the shapes, the swirls, the patterns, the vibrancy. Wonderful choice. Happy New Year to you and Dave and Glenda, of course xxx

One of the best floral shots I've ever seen. Heard you've been traveling!

Re the "Happy New Year" on my blog - I didn't do it, but got it from Amanda at Blogger Buster. The artist was someone named Mooi.

And a very Happy New Year to you and yours!

Joking aside, it is a fine image.

Best wishes to you this New Year!

The best for 2011!

I can't believe that's an orchid! I mean, on closer inspection I can see it is... and I guess it shows what we miss by having such a macro view on our surroundings.

Great photo Julie.
Happy new year!
