Japanese garden - San Francisco

California 2013

As photographers, I think we tend to focus a lot on what does and doesn't fall within the frame when we are composing. But what frame are we really composing within? Recently I began toying with varying aspect ratios in crop. It's incredibly striking how the entire mood of an image is affected by the frame's aspect ratio. Here's an example of an image I took to a 16:9 crop that I really love. The gardens in the France Pavilion are always beautiful to photograph, but may be even more so at night.

This Picture was taken in Oregon Japanese Garden Very beautiful place. can't wait to go back.

Took a quick trip to DC this past weekend. Not enough time, as usual, but had a good time. This is just off the Mall past the Air and Space museum.

I will be out of town until after Christmas and will do my best to comment on your photos.

 

Located in San Francisco, Calif. these Gardens are a wonderful site to visit.

Best viewed on black.

I had fun visiting with Mike Jones on his Pacific Northwest Tour last week.

Powerscourt Estate - Dublin, Ireland

 

This estate was used as one of the locations in the excellent movie The Count of Monte Cristo and many other movies too. Coincidentally, one scene in the movie was filmed at this exact spot. :)

Lan Su Chinese Garden in Porland is a tranquil little spot right in the heart of the city. This is a 5x6 HDR panorama, processed at CloudHDR and stitched with Hugin.

It was raining when I took this picture; so the exposure light was good and colors were saturated. Giverny, France. All Rights Reserved.

Lunch out in the garden with a friend.. good food, good company and yes, clean dishes! I looked over from where we were seated and was delighted by the whimsy of the window box.

World-famous garden noted for its botanical collections

lovely to see some colour returning....yesterday I took a walk around the botanical gardens...it was reassuring to see Cyclamen...Snowdrops...Daphne...Hamamelis etc. flowering again...

 

I'm glad I went yesterday because last night I injured my right foot....but thankfully after spending a few hours this morning in A&E and some x-rays...nothing broken! just a sprain...so here I sit with my right foot propped up on a chair...and my right arm propped up on the table...surely that's it for now...i'm getting a bit fed up of hospital visits!!

 

But...time spent in A&E is always great for 'people watching'...and makes you really appreciate our wonderful NHS!!

Chicago Botanical Gardens. HFF!

Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. Inspired by the centuries-old Chinese tradition of private gardens designed for scholarly pursuits, Liu Fang Yuan, or the Garden of Flowing Fragrance, combines the scenic beauty of nature with the expressiveness of literature to give deeper meaning to the landscape. A walk through its paths enriches the mind and spirit alike. The Huntington—with its renowned collections of art, rare books, manuscripts, and plants—was founded on this same philosophy by Henry E. Huntington in 1919.

 

The garden’s name, Liu Fang Yuan, has both literal and symbolic meanings. The words liu fang, or “flowing fragrance,” refer to the scent of flowers and trees, including the pine, lotus, plum, and other native Chinese plants found here. The Chinese poet Cao Zhi (192–232) first used the words in his “Rhapsody on the Luo River Goddess” to describe how the fragrance of flowers trailed in the goddess’s wake as she walked among the scented flora. And liu fang echoes the name of famed Ming dynasty painter Li Liufang (1575–1629), known for his refined landscapes.
