The Rose Garden
I’ve been thinking about a photograph of The Rose Garden ever since I moved Downtown. It was duly logged in my mental shot list, but never at the top. Now that I’m living practically next door to it, there are no good reasons left not to do it. Before leaving that morning, I did quick web search which revealed that 99.9% of photos of the garden were shot from the main gate so that made it easy to find a new angle. One lap around on my GT Avalanche 2.0 and I found this gap in the vegetation where you could see The Rose Garden and Nature History Museum in the background with these surreal, twisted junipers in the foreground.
