Foto Finish--Water

Today's Foto Finish theme is "Water."  Here'e my entry:


This was taken at the Portland Japanese Garden a few years ago.  I went there on an assignment for a class I was taking through the New York Institute of Photography.  The goal was to blur the movement of the water.  It was my first time visiting the Japanese Garden, and I was quite impressed.  It was a good time of year to visit, and while the weather could have been better, everything was in bloom.  It was beautiful.  There was a student rate, and I had a student ID from the NYIP.  Feeling pretty smug, I showed them my student ID for the discount.  The discount was wiped out, however, when they charged me for bringing in a tripod!  That was a new one on me.

For next week's Foto Finish theme, I've been thinking about this being June, the month for weddings.  In keeping with the wedding theme, I have the next couple of weeks covered. 

Next week's theme will be:  Something Old

Can you see where I'm going with this?  (Don't worry, I won't ask you to post "something borrowed.")

Now I'm ready to see your water images.  I'm trying a new Mr. Linky that will allow you to choose thumbnails. This is an experiment, and I don't know if it will work with FlickR or Shutterfly. It's worth a shot, but please let me know if you're having trouble with it.  If so, I can always go back to the old way. Here you go:

Beautiful waterfall & gardens. Lead me to the picnic table & we'll have a nice lunch now! lol

Really? A charge for the tripod? Wow! Guess they must have been hurting for revenue & someone got really creative.
