Prehistoric Tea Anyone?


I still have a few more photos from the Hayward Japanese Tea Garden….I think I have a couple more posts in me.  You know how I like to drag them out haha.

This time I thought I’d share a scenic shot and oddly enough it looked prehistoric to me.  Not what I would expect from a Japanese Tea Garden!  The entire place was just so incredible and I tried to get a little bit of everything in one shot.

  5. I just LOVE how you processed this one, Laura. Keep those images coming, drag it out for as long as you can, because it is those like me who will be there to cheer you on!! Thank you! Love, Amy

    • Aww thank you Amy :))))) I really appreciate your support and friendship through the blogisphere!

      • I hope you know I feel the same, Laura. *she says as she bites her nails deciding what filter to use to shoot Niagara Falls with* Hehehehehe These weather – peeps know not what they say. Keep your fingers crossed that the day we have decided to go, is overcast with barely any wind. IF that is the case, I can use my CP filter. IF flowing water is still evident, I will have to change filters to one of my ND filters ….. OH! Decisions! IF sunny I will have to use my ND400, GROAN, which I did not want to do! Butterflies in stomach ….. LOL (((HUGS))) Amy
