NOVEMBER 2006: Orchid
Once a year, an orchid exhibition is held in Expominas, the exhibition center in downtown Belo Horizonte. For one weekend, orchid lovers may walk around for hours to see and wonder the exotic colors and shapes of the queens among the flowers. Most of the orchids are for sale, and are sold in large quantities. It is interesting to notice the orchid lovers walking out of the center, with a happy smile on the faces, after having managed to buy the orchid plant of their dreams. An expert jury had previously nominated the best orchids; these winners were positioned in a prominent location. The orchid above did not belong to the winners, but in my opinion these flowers were my champions!
