Weekend Reflections

This is the Brooklyn Botanic's famous Japanese garden 
(the first to be created in an American public garden, in 1915).
It was designed by Japanese landscape designer Takeo Shiota and 
is considered by many to be his masterpiece. Among the
architectural elements used by Shiota are bridges, a
viewing pavilion, and a torii, or gateway (seen here).

  1. Very serene, but with a little energising boost from the red. The reflections are lovely, Alexa.

  2. I am calling by this evening as another participant in Weekend Reflections. What a lovely place and it also has bluebells which I miss.

  3. I do love your colorful, watery reflections, Alexa! Wonderful serenity and I can always use some of that!! Have a great weekend!


  4. Wonderful to see that splash of red in the capture ... a delight to the eyes.

  5. Such an attractive capture - colourful, delicate and reflective. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Beautiful image with reflection.
