Spencer’s grandparents live in a friendly neighborhood. Their home is comfortable and seems fairly normal. But one of their basement doors is not like the others. If you open it, instead of leading to a storage room or a spare bedroom, you’ll find yourself in the tropics: a hot blast of air, nearly 100% humidity, and orchids everywhere.
Spencer took studio shots of the blooms one of the last times that we visited. Here are a few of my favorites.
