2003 Portland, OR. This shot was taken on what I imagine is a typical Portland day at the Portland Japanese Garden. It was overcast and drizzling all day. The grounds are beautiful and I spent about 6 hours there. By the end, I was cold, beat, and I was getting lazy. Fortunately, this was the first shot I took while there. The difficult thing about a place like this is finding shots that feel unique and powerful, without feeling too much like a postcard in the gift shop. On a side note, stopping by the gift shop when photographing an often visited site is a good way to figure out what not to do.
