A Different Perspective

The Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco is a world of it's own. Once you stepped into the gated garden, you won't know that you are in America and not in Japan. The only giveaway are the too many tourists. I bet that a real Japanese Tea Garden will have a zen like atmosphere at it. Nevertheless, it's the closest thing that we can be to experience Japanese zen.

What I like in a Japanese garden is that there are many small gardens that are clustered into one section, but all of these nooks and crannies go together making the garden into one unit. There are so many things that you can see in the garden: the willowy bamboo trees, shrubs, beautiful and vibrant flowers, a Koi pond, cherry blossoms, and Japanese temple replicas. 
I've been to the Japanese Tea Garden for more than a couple of times and I want to take a shot of the temple on a different perspective. I think I'm getting a hype now on a worm's eye view. It totally gives the structure a different perspective.
