Palm Beach..at the Breakers...they always have lots of flowers sitting around inside.....in the morning, about 10 o'clock, walk in the front entrance and sit down on a couch by the windows....on the coffee table by the couch will be some gorgeous orchids (no wind) and plenty of available sunlight... :wink:

You are certainly getting your money's worth out of your Wal Mart lens. Nicely photographed images.
