Perhaps Georgia O'Keeffe was on to something!

I saw the sign advertising the Arboretum having an all orchid show. Telling the wife about it, we made a date to visit. Me with my camera and her with her love of all things orchid.
I walked into the exhibit, holding the door for my wife. We entered and saw a few other photogs. My confidence broke as I noticed others with fancy lenses and expensive looking tripods. I had lost mine this morning and was determined to take good shots hand held.
After finding the right exposure (the room had weird skylights that made it a challenge to expose properly) I snapped a few shots. My wife had wandered off to explore the other flowers.
I sat down and reviewed the photos. My wife popped in and pointed out that all my shots were close-ups of pistols and stamens. The naughty bits of the flower.
"Who do you think you are? Georgia O'Keeffe?" She accused.
I felt she was jealous of my enormous talent (pun intended). She did have a point, if I really enjoyed the macro side of the flowers, perhaps Georgia O'Keeffe had a point.
Yea, I'm a pervert. A flower pervert. Soooo sexy.
