I'd missed a free visit to the Japanese Garden in mid April because I couldn't walk the mile up the hill to the garden with my sprained ankle, so when my parents were in town, I suggested we check it out. It was a cloudy day, and it even rained a couple of minutes after I had to reload my film (phew), so there weren't too many people around. We took our time walking around, stopping to photograph little details, and talked about moss and its importance in Japanese garden design with the pavilion attendant. I also confessed my desire to take a ceramics class and found out that my mother had traveled to central France to take a clay workshop when she was young. My mother who never has time to do anything relaxing or fun!
Canon 1N // Portra 160
I left the garden wanting to go to Japan even more desperately than before, and with a renewed yearning to learn pottery. After I got my film back, I was also ready to exchange all the film in my fridge for some more Portra 160.
I'm in the process of changing the size of the photos on this blog, so please excuse the mess. I absolutely hated the smaller photo size, and even 700 wasn't wide enough for my taste. It seems that 800 is where it's at, although I don't like that the text body is so wide, so I'll have to adjust that. I also revamped part of my portfolio.
