Spring has come and the cherries have blossomed. Join me for another tour of the Japanese gardens in Fort Worth.
Frankly, the seasons are slow to change. As such, there are only so many landscape shots one can take of a 7.5 acre garden. So, I have been experimenting with more portraits.
Most of the leaves have fallen and the nights have become chillier. Winter has taken a hold of North Texas and the Japanese gardens continue their annual evolution.
Join me for some more pictures.
I have absolutely no experience nor even a predisposition to photography. However, I have become quite comfortable with landscape shots as I have have been taking pictures of the Fort Worth Japanese gardens. Recently, I took this image of ginkgo leaves.
I decided to try my hand at taking portraits of interesting objects around the gardens.
Back in July I posted a series of pictures from the Japanese gardens in Fort Worth, Texas. At the time I promise to post more pictures of the gardens in subsequent seasons. As the leaves start to turn in response to the cooler weather brought on by fall, the gardens have evolved vibrant seasonal colors.
Ft. Worth, TX is home to an incredible treasure: the Japanese Garden at the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens. I am saddened that I only discovered this now after living in Texas for four years. As you join me on this visual journey, please remember a few things; I am a terrible photographer, I took these images on a upper-low-end point-and-shoot Canon PowerShot SD1200 iS camera, and that these have not be graphically edited. This place is so beautiful, not even I can take a bad shot.
