The Japanese Gardens of Portland in Fall

dsc_8136.jpgOne of our wonderful Oasis’ is the Japanese Gardens in Washington Park. Every Autumn the meticulously manicured gardens are painted with yellow, orange and red by the Japanese Maples. It is truly tranquil. At the Gardens they have workshops and events. They also have Photographer days where only those in the photographer’s membership are allowed on the grounds to minimize the crowds.

I love going here to walk, relax or shoot. I have shot in film and digital, color and black and white. For an Asian theme in a photo-shoot I would recommend the Japanese Gardens of Portland. Everything from the entrance to the cascading waterfalls filling Coy filled ponds has an authentic Japanese feel

Autum in love


For a Zen Experience I recommend The Japanese Gardens.
