Japanese Gardens in Portland

We flew from Denver to Portland last Friday for a weekend orienteering rogaine. Amazingly, Danny and several friends were also headed to Portland for a volleyball tournament. We met up for lunch and a tour of the Japanese Gardens. It was so pretty in the light rain, and Danny and I especially enjoyed the opportunity to do some photography experimentation.

It's all in the perspective:


Birds (for Mom, even though they are sculptures instead of real birds):

Possibly a Japanese Maple:


Look out, he might bite your leg!

A fun start to a good weekend!
