A Year in Pictures: San Francisco Tea Garden
One of the reasons I pushed to get the WordPress thing started up finally is, this project is much easier to wrangle through here than through LJ/DW.
As some of you may have noticed, I’ve gotten more interested in photography lately. I’ve been taking better pictures in general, then cleaning the results up in Lightroom. I’d like to share them with you, and so I give you: A Year in Pictures. Every weekday from now until the end of the year, I’ll post one of my favorite shots, with a brief note about what it is and why I like it. (The order will be randomized, so you don’t get giant wodges of Italy or Japan or wherever all at once.)

This is a statue in the Golden Gate Park Tea Garden. On this particular day it was typical San Francisco weather: mildly gloomy, raining a little, i.e. not generally the best for photography. It worked well for this shot, though, because of the statue’s slightly melancholy air and the vivid green of the bamboo. Plus, by this point I was starting to learn something about good framing, which is a concept that really escaped me in my earlier years . . . .
