I recently had the pleasure of meeting LaFoto and her husband in NYC. We took a drive up to the Bronx. I didn't have much time but it was a lot of fun. LaFoto is as warm and friendly as her online personality! Here are a 2 pictures from our trip to Wave Hill.

Heya, cool, here they are, the pics from our prior-to-the-big-one-mini-meet-up! :D
Well, yes, I guess I am as bad about the green as you are about the black, though I have a RED winter coat, and I ought to have brought THAT. The New York weather was way too cold for the clothes that we had brought, brrr!
And that was a short but sweet and very nice mini-meet-up with Chris aka Digital_Flower_Pictures and he took us to this wonderful little botanic garden in the west Bronx where it is beautiful and nice and very peaceful .. and some of the flowers were even in bloom, not only in the hothouse, also outside. Not many as yet but some. I took some pics... am busy working on them, soon they should be up :D. Also some of Chris aka Digital_Flower_Pictures ... I have a zoom lens, you know :greenpbl:

And John did a very good job, I must say. Thanks again to John (Chris's friend who works in that garden and who took the photo of the three of us).

(This is not John, who kindly took the photo of the three of us with Chris's camera, and who knows our area here in Germany and has been through here, a pity that he is in none of our photos)

That's Scott Canning the director of horticulture. A very nice person and accomplished gardener. He is from Connecticut, too.

Ah, good, you did take a photo of John and the two of us after all. How nice. I really liked him! And to know that he's at least been through our village while on the train from Hamburg to Bremen is quite something :D.

Flower pics then? Will do ... just a little later, OK?

Ah, ok. "Later" is now already, I can just about squeeze in the resizing, uploading and linking process for the flower pics I've got (there actually are more, but not all came out in the way I had hoped they would :oops: )

Two examples from the beautiful cactus collection there in Wave Hill, the upper two done with the Powershot, and the third and all the following with the 350D and the 300mm lens, either in the macro function or just so...

LaFoto, thanks for sharing. These are wonderful. If I had to choose one it would probably be the second yellow cactus. The pink Hellebore (#5) is very nice also.

Great to see these photos from the mini-meetup. Lafoto picture #2 of the cactus is really great. All your flower pictures are good, but #2 is a stand out.
