Subject: [vnps-pot] Fwd: Virginia Native Plants at U.S. Botanic Garden

some of the text accompanying the photos (see URL) is interesting...

UNDERSTORY--a portfolio of twenty large scale photos on canvas of
native plants that grow beneath the forest canopy--has been on view
at the U.S. Botanic Garden since January www.understory.us The
exhibition will run through the first week in October. I will be
giving a tour of the exhibition this Sunday and the second Sunday of
August and September at 2 pm. I'll be telling the story of how the
portfolio evolved and demonstrating how I take the photos.

Happy botanizing!
