Some shots from Meijer Gardens

The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is just five or so miles from my house and a great place to go to shoot photographs.  I got there at opening time this morning, 9:00 a.m., and spent an hour shooting.

An Afternoon Shooting at Meijer Gardens

I stopped by the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park this afteroon to get some practice with my camera.  Here are some of the shots from the session. (Click on a photo to see a larger image.)

These next three photos are of “Aria,” by Alexander Liberman.

I have tried to get a decent photo of “Eve,” by Auguste Rodin but have never quite been satisfied.  This one comes close but the focus is kind of mushy.  IMG_9345

One of the things I am trying to do is to envision things in black and white.  Some of the photos I took today converted nicely, I think.
