There’s a gem in West Seattle I didn’t know anything about until recently. Living within walking distance of the University of Washington Arboretum I knew the Japanese Garden there well. After being in West Seattle for almost a year I finally found the Seattle Chinese Garden just a short drive from my house.

Walking through the garden in late fall was a lovely experience with great architecture and light for photography. I can’t wait to visit it again through the seasons of 2021 with new eyes as the blooms bring an explosion of color to the park.

    1. It’s a good suggestion and I did consider it. I wanted some of the tree on the right to see be there. It’s not causing the shadow, that’s from another tree across the courtyard that’s out of frame. I’ll play with it some more to see how I can remove more distraction from the image.
