    I've always been partial to the 'straight on' shot. I like to be able to
gauge the form of the flower and it's easier to get a feel for the width of
the flower, especially the falls. I like the form and ruffles of Heartbreak
Hotel, and think they are more impressive than the beard/horn. On the other
hand I thought the violet horn on the previously posted pink BB was
spectacular, long and elegant, and deserved to be the center of attention.
    As for seeing it in the garden, pictures that show the whole stalk are
the next best thing.

We all have a standing argument here and maybe everyone can help us out.
One camp in the office thinks that a side picture of a SA is a better shot
because it more acurately shows the appendages.  The other camp likes it
straight on.  What do you all think?  I will send two pictures of HEARTBREAK
HOTEL, one straight on, the other side view.  HEARTBREAK HOTEL is IMHO one
of our best SA intros.  You should see it in the garden!  Your input will
help settle one of the biggest arguments we have.
Here is picture # 1, # 2 will follow.
