I've had very little worth posting up lately. Seems I'm on another learning curve (involuntarily,) and nearly everything I've shot has either been just like everything else, or frankly quite terrible. And yes, I am my own worst critic, but believe it when I say QUITE TERRIBLE. Ha!
Last night I was at the Japanese garden for a showcase. (Teaware and other artistic endeavors.) I went in search of the koi. The gardens lost many of their koi this last winter due to our unprecedented freeze - the worst snow and longest stretch of freezing temperatures we'd had here in the Portland area in over 40 years. I found just a few down at the end next to the tiny falls, my favorite spot. They are difficult to capture in a photo, but I liked how this turned out.
This is the spot:
