Ginger flower interior

This is a close view of the interior of a ginger flower, showing the delicate features, subtle colors, and feathery texture.

By coincidence, my high school debate partner, who is lawyer in St. Louis, has a ginger farm near Arenal, Costa RIca. Who would have thought that two high school friends growing up in Missouri would both own property in Costa Rica 40 years later.

We are showing photos of Easter Island this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site

The anecdote about you and your friend is a great story of fate that just can't seem to be denied. And, I cannot deny the loveliness of the flower. Super macro, esp because of the subtle shades of colour.
