Japanese Garden

People who view this blog know that I am not a big fan of nature, floral, etc. Been there, done that. Who has something new to say? It's not that I'm against beauty but, as the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I have, well, strange tastes.

Sometimes on a weekend I'm out looking for material for the week's posts and nothing comes to mind. Brain freeze. There are a few locations I fall back on: the riverfront, Forest Park and, of course, our gorgeous Missouri Botanical Garden. I went there on Sunday looking for bridges for the December 1 theme day - the Japanese garden has a couple of charming examples. The garden is bursting with fall colors and the light was divine - tiny showers giving way to sunshine. A bit out of character, but I was seduced.

TOMORROW: En-wa Nihongo doko desu ka?

Seduction works! Beautiful photo and fascinating bridge. Hope you plan to post some of the other bridges because of they're typical, they should be lovely.

Nice. I like how the focus fades out softly along the different trees. This place is a gem.

Ah yes, easily seduced; I like the seduction of hot pink flowers. But this bridge has quite the architectural appeal.

Cool bridge.

Beauty is whimsical and comes to you in many ways. As you say it depends on the beholder and I suppose on the moment too. To have strange tastes means you can appreciate beauty where many can't find them. In this case, it is a much more universal topic but you still caught it in a different way. I like the frame colors and shapes create around the bridge.

Just like the small Japanese gardens I wanted to make with glass pearls when I was a child.

Beautiful bridge, great color! I never get tired of the beauty of flowers and nature, I guess I'm boring that way. But I also love bridges and prolly took 100 photos of them int he last month alone. Maybe I should post more of those, LOL!
