    Thanks, Yew - you've given a great gift to those of us who couldn't possibly get to Singapore (I suspect that is most of us). I sympathize with your frustration about trying to work a D200 without a tripod and time to make the fine adjustments. I find that if I'm using my D80, if I can't have my tripod and the right lighting and background, I just get frustrated and would probably do better with a point-n-shoot. That said, your photos are great, and really give a sense of the overall ambiance there.

    Just an aside - I really couldn't tell if the South African display had any angraecoids, which I would have thought they'd have lots of - did you see any? Almost time for angraecum sesquipedales to bloom! Ours won't, because it's still having a hissy fit from being repotted months ago, but I hope to see at least one in bloom - I never have, you know.

    I wonder how many of our members will be able to get to the WOC in South Africa. I wish I didn't have such a flying phobia, or I'd go in a minute.

    So sorry about your shoulder, and Zain's illness - not too good a time for OT members these days - better days ahead.

    I think we should organize a special Orchid Show for OT members - wouldn't that be fun? Imagine all the incredible and beautiful blooms we would have to show!

    Wink More pix from 20 WOC

    Here are some more group displays :-

    #1 Some Angraecoids from Madagascar
    #2 Another part of the Thai display - clever use of Tolumnias, vandas and paphs
    #3 Award winning display by the Eric Young Foundation - could not fit in the paphs to the right of the picture, but will show the fabulous paphs in a later post

    #4 This is a picture of one of the Taiwanese vendors offering some fantastic cattelyas


    I reckon that the Taiwanese made up 70% of the vendors at the show

    very Very VERY impressive show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Must have been a display for each one of us to fall in love with. Sounds like your grand daughter may have some special powers there.!!!!!???? You do the teasing and in return the revenge is served fast and cold. Nothing worse than recurring old injuries making a comeback.!!Hope you win the battle with that one!

    To visit such an event is definitely an unique experience. I was waiting for someone to post some photos from this event too, so thank you so much Yew for wonderful photos. If only I was there...I hope your shoulder is already OK

    Thank you for the photos. I think the displays are decent but the awarded plants that I saw (on other people's photos) are really not up to WOC standard. Hope you and your family had a great time.
    WOC is a great experience for any orchid hobbyist no matter how the event turns out...and I am glad I went to the 19th WOC in Miami.

    Default More pix from 20 WOC

    Apart from the landscaped display, some individual plants impressed. I didn't take a lot of pictures of these as they were among the massed display and I had decided to seek them out to photograph on the subsequent visit (which of course did not materialise).

    I managed to photograph some paphs.

    BTW thanks everyone for your concern about my injury. I feel much better now after a few sessions with the physiotherapist.

    #1 Brachy collection
    #2 Didn't record the name
    #3 Collection of fairrieanum, charlesworthii and spicerianum
    #4 Self explanatory
