Phipps Conservatory

So I went to the Phipps Conservatory today to take some photos. I love my fancy Canon Rebel, but I’m notorious for leaving my camera behind when going on outings, and so I never have any new photos! It seems that if I want to take pictures with it, I have to plan a trip to do so. That’s all the well, I’ll get better at remembering eventually.

The Phipps is one of my favorite places in Pittsburgh – both the architecture and the overwhelming pleasantness of the botanical gardens. Plus, it has a whole room devoted entirely to orchids, my favorite flower!

You can see all the photos here, but below are a few of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

I took all these with a standard lens kit, though I often was craving a macro lens. I think I did just fine without one 🙂
