A walk in the garden

I arrived in Houston to meet with a friend a bit early. I planned on spending the morning in the museums, but they don't open until noon on Sunday. So I decided to head to nearby Hermann Park to the famous rose garden there.

 

As an experiment, I put on my Nikon 14-24mm 2.8 lens to try some new things out... It's not my usual stuff, but I'm happy with the results.

 

I did a bunch more - but only made one public... you can see the rest in large size on my blog right here: stuckincustoms.com/2009/01/02/a-walk-in-the-garden/
