I finally got the 2nd roll of film from the Arboretum developed. It has about half arboretum pictures. All of the arboretum pictures from the roll were from the Bonzai and Penjing exhibit. I only managed to walk through about half of the exhibit because of the heat, but here are some of my better pictures.
Here another nice picture from the roll of film for the heck of it.
I see this tree from my drive in to work every day and it had intrigued me. It was struck by lightening a couple of weeks back and I had been meaning to find a way to get up to it to take some pictures since then. I finally decided to after work one day. It took me 10 minutes of driving around and then a quarter mile run through waist high grass and plants (I was wearing shorts. Note to self, self is idiot. Second note to self get wife to dress self before leaving house). That quarter mile run was done while crouched over to keep unobtrusive so the guys at the work site nearby wouldn’t notice me…especially since there were plenty “NO hunting, fishing or trespassing, violators will be prosecuted!!!” signs everywhere. Oh well, I guess I just missed the signs 😀
