If I had not mentioned it before, we went to the gardens close to closing time. The nice thing about that is that you don’t have to worry as much about capturing people in your photos. Now I know that some people love to take photographs with people in the background, but I (for some odd reason) want to make it seem as if I am the only person there and that you are there along with me. It is to take up the whole scene, without the distraction of people or things that take away from what I am focusing on. So yes, you will rarely see things like cars in the background, or people, or power lines. They dot the landscape, for sure, but I choose to stray away from them.
For that reason, today, I get to share with you a bit of the view from the gardens that is rare to capture. Often there are so many people milling about that it is difficult to take such images. It was just a gentle stroll through the gardens in the early evening, but it was an opportunity to see her in silence, to enjoy her beauty through a different lens.
