Fanning Out, Rawlings Conservatory, Baltimore
I've wanted to take in the beauty at Rawlings for some time now so I was thrilled to join some friends who going. Thanks for a great day of shooting to Anthony T., Lea and Joyce, and my new friends MariAnne and Kelly.
I thought the selective color helped with the busy background and gave this a unique look.

Druid Hill Conservatory (officially known as the Howard Peter Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore), a lovely architectural relic from the Victorian era, still blooms in Baltimore today.
Its original structures, The Palm House (the distinctive arched structure) and Orchid Room, were built in 1888. Later additions include the three greenhouses that each mimic desert, tropic and Mediterranean habitats.
