A few years ago at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, there was an exhibit of works by the glass sculpture Frabel. A few of the pieces from that exhibit are now permanent items at Phipps and live in the orchid room. I obsessively photograph them on every visit with no deviation today, but there was one key difference. Today, my camera was equipped my new toy– the Nikkor 55-300mm f4.5/5.6. And I finally got some shots that I’m very excited about.
